Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 24 balls


  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 scoops, 64 grams chocolate protein powder
  • 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips


  • Place oats, peanut butter, honey, protein powder and chocolate chips in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Getting the mixture to combine takes a little arm muscle and it may seem too thick at first, but it will come together as you keep mixing. I used my hands to knead the dough near the end and that seems to help.
  • Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  • Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

      We love this recipe. Fast, easy and we always have these ingredients in the pantry. I recently made these for a family friend who was getting ready to have a chemo treatments and likes to snack more than having meals. He loved these and it made me feel better he was at least getting protein while snacking. Can’t wait to try the coconut protein ball recipe.

      I love these balls, I also found them a bit dry though. I might try using slightly less oats next time. If it makes a difference, I used Musashi “high protein” powder, chocolate milk flavour.

        Hi Pat – sorry to hear you had issues with this recipe. A splash of milk will usually help if this happens again!
