No Bake Protein Bites

proteinbites

Hello, and happy Tuesday! I have a quick and easy, no bake, chocolate peanut butter protein bite recipe for you today. Let me just start by warning you…If you lack self control, don’t make these. They taste AH-MAZING, and you’re going to be tempted to eat them all. My husband and daughter are obsessed. You’ve been warned.

These delectable little balls (in the famous words of Michael Scott “That’s what she said!” ;-)  ) pack a mean punch. They are loaded with chunky peanut butter, protein powder, honey, chocolate chips, and either raw oats or rice krispies. They taste like cookie dough, but provide a healthy dose of good-for-you-fats and protein. If you use local honey it’s also good for fighting allergies – Bonus! I have a major sweet tooth, and these babies do the trick every time. Since they’re packed full of protein they fill me up and keep me from rummaging through the fridge an hour later.

protein bites ingredientsIngredients:

1/2 Cup Chunky Peanut Butter (or nut butter of your choice)

1/3 Cup Honey

1 Cup Raw Oats or 1 Cup Rice Krispies (I made both, and the rice krispies are bomb-dot-com!)

1/3 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips

1/2 Cup Vanilla Protein Powder

Optional: Coconut (tastes best with the raw oats)

mix ingredients

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients until well mixed. Use your hands to form 1″ balls. Place in tupperware and cool in the fridge for 30+ minutes, and then enjoy!

If any of you make these tweet me or Instagram me a picture!

  1. These look amazing! My boys would love these. I tried to make my own using a similar combination of ingredients ,but instead of oats I tried to use coconut chia granola cereal and it was a bit too heavy so it was really tough to roll the balls and I ended up trying to force it together using a cake pop maker..which kind of worked but was more work than I had planned! lol

  2. You had me at no bake….because well um you know that storage situation in the oven ;-) Those look so good and easy to grab for breakfast on the go!

  3. These would be gone in no time if I made them!! Gary has some protein powder laying around so I’ll definitely be using that!!

  4. Can’t wait to try these, so easy!

  5. doing some major blog stalking and these looks so delis!
