  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats gluten free if necessary
  • 1/2 cup protein powder vanilla, chocolate, or peanut butter (can be vegan or whey)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (26 oz) jar all natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup I like using 1/2 and 1/2 (use maple syrup to keep vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Using a stand mixer or a food processor: mix or pulse together oats, protein powder, flaxseed, and salt.
  • Add in peanut butter, honey/maple syrup, and vanilla, then mix or pulse again until well combined.
  • Use your hands to mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop and roll into 40 balls.
  • Store in the fridge or freezer, then serve frozen, chilled, room temperature, or warmed in the microwave!
