PB + Chocolate Protein Balls

Oh boy, do I have a recipe for you! Not only is the outcome delicious, but it is super easy to make. These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Protein Balls are beyond amazing and perfect pre-workout fuel.

Let's just say these are addicting and so chocolatey!
Here's what you'll need:
-2 bananas
-1 cup old fashioned oats
-1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chunks)
-2 tbsp. natural peanut butter (or any natural nut butter)
I used Enjoy Life chocolate chunks to make the recipe dairy-free. You would never guess they are any different than regular chocolate chips, but they just happen to be dairy, nut, gluten, and soy free!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl. 
Mix all ingredients together. 
Roll mixture into a ball shape and place onto a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.
 Let the balls cool for a few minutes before eating (I know, it's hard to resist!)
These are perfect for a post-dinner treat, pre-workout fuel, or an on-the-go snack.
I found it best to refrigerate them to keep them together and maintain the freshness.

Let me know if you make them and how they turn out!
I loved these and can't wait to try out adding different ingredients in. Almond butter, dried fruit, so many possibilities!


  1. LOVE! I'll be making these this week FOR SURE!

    1. Enjoy! Let me know how they turn out :)

  2. This looks SO delicious! OMG. And even I could probably make them! Haha.


    1. haha they are so simple to make it and so delicious too! :)

  3. I've been searching the internet for hours for a simple recipe like this, and I gave up. I ended up on your blog through Melissa's (nourishbymelissa) and you have EXACTLY what I wanted! OMG! I am seriously making these tonight. I bet these would be amazing with almond butter too! xx

    1. Thank you! I am glad you stumbled upon this recipe! I definitely debated whether to use almond butter or peanut butter, next time I make them I think I will try almond butter! Let me know how they turn out :)
