When a recipe is a simple and quick as this, you know you’ll be making it over and over (especially when there is minimal cleanup)! Here are the simple ingredients you’ll need:
Rolled Oats – This versatile grain is the base for this delish recipe and so many of my other recipes like my overnight oats!
Chocolate Protein Powder- This is what gives this snack its chocolatey goodness with the added health benefit.
Peanut Butter- I love to use peanut butter without added sugar. Just peanuts with their natural oils work great.
Honey- To make this recipe vegan, just swap this out with agave syrup and you’re good to go!
Chocolate Chips- My favorite dark chocolate chips are EnjoyLife Semi-Sweet Morsels which are dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free!

- Includes 20 g of vegan protein with 24 vitamins and minerals.

How long do protein balls last?
These protein balls can keep in a stored container for a week, in the fridge for two weeks, and in the freezer for several months! Make sure to seal them in airtight containers for added freshness and longevity.
We loved ours so much they only lasted in our house for one week. If you think that might be your case too, try doubling the recipe!
