  • 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.
    Ingredients mixed together.
  • 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.


  • Honey: Use maple syrup instead of honey.
  • Peanut butter: Any nut butter will work for this recipe! You can use almond butter, cashew butter, tahini or sunflower butter.
  • Protein powder: I prefer the chocolate protein powder as it pairs nicely with the peanut butter and chocolate chips, but feel free to use your favorite brand and flavor of protein powder for this recipe! 
  • Chocolate chips: You could always skip the chocolate chips and add a different mix-in. Some great examples include: dried cranberries, raisins, shredded coconut, crushed nuts, cacao nibs, chia seeds or ground flax seeds.
