Protein Energy Balls Recipe

Just a heads up! This recipe is going to change your life…

If you’re like me and want a quick snack before your workout you’re going to want to try this.


Total Time: 10 Minutes. 

Yield: 20-24 balls (depends on size)



  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (about 2 scoops)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)*
  • 3 T natural honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup raisins, chocolate chips or preferred add-in
  • 2-4 T liquid (almond milk, milk, water, whatever you want)



  1. Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds to a large bowl.
  2. Add in peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  3. Add in raisins (or preferred add-in). Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly.
  4. Slowly add in liquid 1 tablespoon at a time and using hands (get dirty!) combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape.
  5. Roll into balls using hands.
  6. Place in a container to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Store in fridge until ready to eat.


Simple and easy. I make some at the beginning of the week and pack them up for a little snack throughout my day. It helps with that sweet tooth craving. I feel more energized. Great pre and post workout snack. Try them and see for yourself!
