No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bites

A client asked me for snack ideas so I asked my colleague Ruthie to share with me her protein snack bite recipe.  I’m including that recipe under this one for reference.  I had a friend ask me what to substitute oatmeal for in these kinds of recipes and it got my wheels churning.  Here is what I came up with and they are really delicious.  Bonus, these are also grain free, gluten free and dairy free. Enjoy!


  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (almond butter will work too)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 3 scoops of protein powder (96 grams) – I used vanilla but any will work
  • 4 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons mini semi-sweet / dark chocolate chips OR cacao nibs
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • a pinch of salt


Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated.  If it feels too crumbly add a teeny bit of water.  Too wet, add a bit more protein powder.  Roll into balls with about a spoonful of dough and place in a parchment lined container.  Store in the fridge for up to a week (they won’t last that long).
