When I need something to satisfy my kids and husband fast, I always turn to protein balls. Made with ingredients I have around the house, it’s simple for me to make a batch.


I keep a basket full of the ingredients together in my pantry so it is easy to pull it out and make them in minutes.

  • Begin by adding 1 cup of oats to a bowl.
  • Then ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • ¼ cup of honey


Add in one scoop of protein powder of your choice, I used pumpkin Molk protein powder for this batch. Use any protein of your choice and any flavor.

Stir until combined. The mixture will be thick.

Roll into balls and you are done!

I like to keep these in the fridge in a Tupperware container where they can be easily grabbed for a treat or post workout fueling.

What’s fun about this recipe is that you can tweak it however you would like. You can add more ingredients in or take things out. I like to make them differently each time.

Add in: raisins, craisins, flax seeds, maple syrup, lemon, pumpkin puree, nuts, seeds,M & Ms…

Change up the protein flavor for the season or to keep it ever changing.

    I make these all the time. We really enjoy them. I add 1/3 cup of ground flax seed and 2 teaspoons of melted coconut oil.
