Peanut Butter Protein Bites

My friend, Chrissy, shared this recipe with me years ago and from time to time, I will make a batch of these delicious protein bites which are perfectly satiating for a quick breakfast, or healthy snack after work when dinner is still a couple of hours away and you need to squeeze in a workout or some chores. You can vary the mix-ins with whatever you like, or substitute peanut butter for almond butter, but I am stuck on the chocolate-walnut combo. Here’s how to make them.

Peanut Butter Protein Bites


  • 2 cups quick oats

  • 1 cup flaxseed

  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, such as Ghiradelli

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, lightly chopped


  1. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk.

  2. Add peanut butter and mix thoroughly with a spatula.

  3. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Wet your hands and roll the mixture into the size of a golf ball. Set the balls on the tray and place in the fridge to harden.

  4. Store between sheets of wax paper in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
