To make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Protein Bites

These reeses peanut butter cup truffles are the perfect no bake and easy protein energy bites.


  • Process the oats in a food processor to make a rough flour-like consistency.
  • Combine the peanut butter, oats, protein powder and milk in a bowl.
  • Stir until it forms a dough. It might look too dry, but just give it a bit of time. If it’s still too dry, add just a teaspoon of more milk.
  • Chop the Reese’s or sugar free peanut butter cups and fold in.
  • Spoon out some of the peanut butter protein truffle mix, about a tablespoon worth, and roll it using your (clean) hands.
