Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls Recipe

Posted by Amina AlTai on

As a nutrition and corporate wellness consultant, my chief responsibility is keeping America’s workforce nourished—especially when they’re living life on-the-go.

My clients are constantly shuttling between hotels, planes and trains and that can derail a healthy lifestyle.  So, along with our wellness plans, we always create a food roadmap and that usually includes go-to snacks we either pack in our bags or find in whatever corner of the globe we’re visiting this week.  One of my absolute faves are these delicious, nutrition packed protein bites.  They’re great to keep in the fridge for breakfast or to toss in your bag for a handy road snack. Major bonus: they’re also super easy to make. 

All you need is:

1 cup of dry oats

½ a cup of nut butter (almond, cashew and peanut all work great!)

¼ a cup of coconut syrup (I prefer this to agave as it’s low glycemic and more nutritious)

¼ cup of dark chocolate chips (try and find a brand that doesn’t use refined sugar)

¼ a cup of coconut flakes

1 scoop of protein powder

Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl and then roll into tablespoon sized balls.  Place on a cookie sheet in the fridge for 20 minutes to set.  Enjoy!

Make 8 balls.
