How to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • smooth peanut butter
  • skimmed milk powder
  • coconut flour
  • almond milk
  • vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips

To make these peanut butter bites, simply mix together the peanut butter, skimmed milk powder, coconut flour, almond milk, and vanilla extract until combined.

If the mixture seems too dry, add more almond milk, or if too wet, add more flour!

Fold in the chocolate chips, then roll the dough into 12 balls. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat.

These No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Balls are:

  • super quick and easy to make
  • deliciously creamy and fudgy
  • LOADED with peanut butter flavour
  • perfect for a quick, healthy snack

How long will these peanut butter balls last? These balls can stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Can I freeze these peanut butter balls? Yes! They also freeze well for up to 2 – 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

Each dough ball contains around 7g of protein, and 166 calories. Of course, you could omit the chocolate chips for even less calories! But you know me, I love my chocolate. 😉

What I love most about these protein balls (besides the peanut butter, and protein factor!) is they taste like peanut butter cups, only a lot healthier!

      Thanks, Shannon! Skimmed milk powder is a great alternative to protein powder in baking 🙂

    This sounds easy and delicious! My daughter is coming home from college next week (Yay!) and I’m definitely making this for her — she’s allergic to peanut butter, but I imagine almond butter would work too, don’t you think?

          Seeing as you only need a small amount of coconut flour, using plain/all-purpose flour in its place should be fine. You may need to use more all-purpose flour, as coconut flour absorbs more moisture, so a little of it goes a long way. For every cup of all-purpose flour, you only need 1/4 – 1/3 cup of coconut flour. 🙂
