Almond Joy Protein Balls

Servings: 28 balls


  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp coconut or almond extract
  • 1/4 cup milled flaxseed or protein powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Combine almond butter, honey, extract, flaxseed and 1/4 cup coconut into the bowl of a stand mixer.  Mix well.
  • Add oats and chocolate chips.  Mix to combine.
  • Use a mini cookie scoop to form balls.  Roll balls in 1/2 cup coconut.
  • If stacking, use parchment paper between layers.  Store in the fridge or freezer.


You can use any nut butter in place of almond butter.
For a smoother, more cookie-dough-like texture, use blended oats or Kodiak Cakes flour in place of the oats.
If you're using all-natural almond butter, you may need to add a little more honey or melted coconut oil to help bind the protein balls together better (if the mixture seems dry and crumbly).
