Four No-Bake Protein Ball Recipes

Four No-Bake Protein Ball Recipes

These four simple energy bites are easy to make, last for days and taste like a treat!

If you're looking for an easy, sweet treat that will keep you full and satisfied for a few hours during the day, then look no further. These four protein ball recipes are a staple in my house, especially when I'm pressed for time or on the go. The best part is that they have fiber, protein and some healthy fats. Change up the recipe to your taste and alternate between each one so that you never get bored. Here are my four go-to protein ball recipes.

For all of these recipes, just mix together, form into balls, and let set in fridge for 1-2 hours.

1. Chocolate Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  •  3/4 cups natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or 1-2 packets of stevia
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder, I'm loving this one right now!

Health benefits: Peanut butter contains omega-6 fatty acids and are also rich in arginine, an amino acid that promotes good blood vessel function. 

2. Tahini Chocolate Almond  

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  •  1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or 1-2 packets stevia
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  •  2 scoops protein powder of your choice 
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

Health benefits: Tahini is rich in copper, a mineral essential for iron absorption. Raw cacao is packed with flavonoids, which have been shown to help lower blood pressure.

3. Spiced Pumpkin (Perfect for Fall!) 🍂🌰

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin puree
  • 2 scoops Chai Latte Mix, linked here!
  • Dash of cinnamon and vanilla

Health benefits: This protein ball recipe, Spiced Pumpkin might be my favorite! Pumpkin is full of fiber and beta carotene and the spices in the chai are full of antioxidants. The chai is also linked to mental clarity, may lower blood pressure and may prevent hypertension, especially in people with diabetes.

4. Matcha Moringa Protein Ball

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds (pulsed in blender)
  • 1/4 cup cashews (pulsed in blender)
  • 1/8 cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon matcha
  • 1 teaspoon moringa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or 1-2 packets stevia
  • 1-2 scoops unflavored protein powder 

Health benefits: Full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, this  protein ball recipe might be the healthiest! Pumpkin seeds contain manganese, which supports bone health and zinc, a mineral that helps the immune system fight bacteria. Moringa is rich in antioxidants, lowers cholesterol and may help lower blood sugar levels and inflammation in the body.
