Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20 protein balls
  • ½ cup nut butter (see below for Nut-Free Option)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup, or your liquid sweetener of choice
  • ⅛ teaspoon natural vanilla flavoring or powder (optional)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened dairy-free protein powder
  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, to taste
  • Pinch fine salt (omit if using salted nut butter)
  • ½ cup quick oats (certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • ¼ cup raisins, chopped
  1. In a small bowl, stir together the nut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla (if using).
  2. Add the protein powder, cinnamon, and salt (if using), and stir until smooth.
  3. Add the quick oats and raisins, and stir until combined, bringing it together with your hands, as needed.
  4. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. You can leave them as balls, or flatten them a bit like thick little cookies.
  5. Store the protein bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer until ready for a snack.
Nut-Free Option: Sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter, or other peanut butter alternative should work just fine. Some types are a little oilier. If needed, add a little more protein powder or oats.
