When life is busy and you’re always on-the-go, it’s so nice to have pre-made snacks that will fill you with energy and are easy to grab and go. These protein bites are a staple in our house and I always have a batch in the fridge or freezer. They’re great to eat before or after a workout, to send in kids lunches or as a treat to fulfill your sweet-tooth hankering.
These protein balls are easily customizable. You can switch out the almond butter with any nut butter of your choice. You can also change the flavor by using different extracts or nuts/seeds in place of the mini chocolate chips.
This basic protein ball recipe is always a favorite at our house – even with my kids and husband. They come together quickly and easily with ingredients you likely have in your pantry. With almond butter, raw honey, milled flaxseed or protein powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, almond extract, oats and mini chocolate chips, they’re packed with nutrients and energy. You’ll feel like you’re eating Almond Joy cookie dough when you bite into one of these protein balls, but it will leave you feeling energized and fulfilled.

Can I cook these or are they meant to be eaten like cookie dough?
No need to cook! They are meant to be eaten raw – yes, they taste similar to cookie dough 🙂
Hi Brittney ! Would a food processor work instead of a stand mixer ?? Thanks!
Yes! You could definitely make these in a food processor.
Thank you so much !!
