  • Place oats, cashew butter, honey, protein powder, raisins and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir to combine.
    Ingredients for cinnamon raisin protein balls in a bowl.
  • Getting the mixture to combine takes a little arm muscle and it may seem a little crumbly 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 in a bowl.
  • 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: Maple syrup will work great as a substitute for honey.
  • Cashew butter: If you’re looking to swap the cashew butter with another nut or seed butter you could use almond butter, peanut butter, tahini or sunflower seed butter.
  • Protein powder: I prefer vanilla protein powder as it pairs nicely with the cashew butter, cinnamon and raisins but feel free to use your favorite brand and flavor of protein powder for this recipe!
  • Raisins: Feel free to swap the raisins with another dried fruit like dried cranberries or dates. You can also add additional mix-ins to this recipe if you want. Some good options include shredded coconut, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, chopped nuts or chia seeds.
