Description

These peanut butter protein balls are n0-bake and packed with protein for a healthy snack! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup plant-based protein powder, or almond flour
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or large bowl and mix together until blended. (if using a food processor, add in the chocolate chips at the end and pulse just until mixed.) 
  2. Use your hands to roll into even balls.
  3. Place in the fridge to set. 

Notes

The amount of protein per ball can vary based on the brand of protein powder you use or if you chose to use almond flour. With almond flour, these balls have roughly 5 grams of protein each. 

Depending on the brand of peanut butter you use, you may need to add slightly more or less peanut butter to get everything to bind together.

If using peanut butter with no salt in it, add a pinch of salt to this recipe to boost the flavour.

Don’t overdo it with the chocolate chips! If you add too many you’ll find that they make it hard to roll the dough into balls.

Use 1 tbsp or a small cookie scoop to measure out even balls
