Peanut butter protein balls

Peanut butter protein balls

These peanut butter protein balls are sensational. They’re stupid-easy to make, and they work as a handy, tasty snack. Plus, you get 10g of protein per serving (5 balls). The Army chefs (and all-round legends) from the 167 Catering Support Regiment RLC show you how it’s done…

Peanut butter protein balls recipe (makes 12)


  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm syrup (honey also works)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup protein powder of choice
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free, if desired)
  • 1 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (vegan, if desired)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  1. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, coconut palm syrup and vanilla extract until well combined
  2. Add in protein powder, coconut, flaxseed meal, oats, chocolate chips and chia seeds
  3. Mix until well combined, get stuck in with your hands, working the dough. At this point you should be able to form balls that stick together
  4. Because all peanut butter/nut butter consistencies are different and depending on what protein powder you use, you may need to add in more nut butter or sweetener to help the balls stick together
  5. Form into 12 balls and place in an airtight container
  6. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week, or the freezer for a month
  7. Enjoy!
