Oatmeal Cookie Protein Balls

These are a great grab and go snack. I love to keep a batch of these in the freezer at all times for when I am on the go or for before a workout. 


Oatmeal Cookie Protein Balls

Makes about 20-24 balls (depending on size) 


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder of choice (I love this one
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice) 
  • Optional: 1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips


  1. Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds to a large bowl and combine
  2. Add in peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir to combine and then add in chocolate chips (if using) 
  3. Slowly add in liquid 1 tablespoon at a time and using hands combine until it comes together in a sticky ball. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won't hold shape.
  4. Roll into balls and place in a container to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Store in fridge or freezer.
