Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these bites. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Smooth peanut butter: You can use crunchy peanut butter for added crunch.
  • Honey, maple syrup, or agave
  • Vanilla extract
  • Rolled oats: Quick porridge oats work too.
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.

How to make No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Balls

To make these bites, simply grab a large mixing bowl and mix together the peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract.

Add the oats and chocolate chips, and fold in until completely combined. If needed, you can use your hands to bring everything together.

TIP: If the mixture is too crumbly to roll into balls, add milk (1 tablespoon at a time) until it becomes easier to manage.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
