Peanut Butter Protein Balls

It’s well-known that good things come in small packages. These are no exception – these little bites of bliss taste like fudgey caramel snicker bars. Packed with protein and low GI carbs, they’ll ward off hunger until your next meal. They’re also conveniently portable – so stash some in your desk drawer in the office for that 3pm snack attack.





  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup coconut nectar / raw honey / maple syrup
  • ¼ cup uncooked quinoa seeds
  • ½ cup sultanas or goji berries
  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla essence
  • 1 scoop of your favourite protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.
  2. Add honey and peanut butter (room temp is best).
  3. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  4. Note: Mixture will be very stiff to begin with – work those triceps! Finished product should be a little crumbly but still hold together. Add more honey if too dry, or more oats if too sticky.
  5. Refrigerate mixture for 30 mins, then roll into bite-size balls.
  6. Store in fridge in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
Substitute honey for stevia drops if you’re wanting a lower-sugar version.
Cover in a mix of raw chocolate then sprinkle with nuts for a party-ready cake pop!
