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.

      Really enjoyed this recipe and they taste gorgeous.i was looking for something healthy but full of protein. I was getting fed up of paying out for boxes of protein bars. This is definitely going to be my go to recipe from now on.

      Soo dry. I should have added milk or something to these. I could hardly get them to form into balls after head kneading and mixing for 10 minutes.

        Hey Andrea – Sorry to hear you had issues with this recipe. What brand of peanut butter did you use? From the sounds of it, the peanut butter might have been on the drier side? A splash of milk will usually help if this happens again!
