Peanut Butter and Chocolate Protein Balls

​This great little snack is packed full of both fiber & protein and you wouldn’t even know that it’s healthy because it tastes like a little PB & chocolate ball.  These healthy snacks keep well for a week or so in the refrigerator and they’re great to have on hand as a go-to option as opposed to having something unhealthy (like cookies in my case).

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Protein Balls

1/2 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
1/4 cup coconut palm syrup (honey also works)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup protein powder (I used chocolate protein powder)
1/3 cup flaxseed meal
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips
1 tbsp chia seeds


  1. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, coconut palm syrup and vanilla extract until well combined. Add in protein powder, coconut, flaxseed meal, oats, chocolate chips and chia seeds. Mix until well combined.
  2. At this point you should be able to form balls that stick together, all peanut butter/nut butter consistencies are different and depending on what protein powder you use, you may need to add in more nut butter or sweetener to help the balls stick together.
  3. Form into 12 balls and place in an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week, or the freezer for a month.
