Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bites Recipe Notes

You’ll only need 6 ingredients to make the recipe: 

  • rolled oats, powdered peanut butter, protein powder
  • ripe banana and honey
  • mini chocolate chips

dry ingredients mixed together with mashed banana, honey, and chocolate chips

Like I mentioned in my no bake s’mores bites recipe, the protein powder will be the biggest variable in this recipe. I use PEScience Select in my recipes. This protein powder is a blend of whey and casein, making it a bit thicker in consistency than whey-only protein powders. 

If you’re using another protein powder, you’ll likely need to modify the recipe to get the consistency right. The biggest tip I can give here will be adding the wet ingredients (banana and honey) slowly to avoid over hydrating things. 

Pro tip: You can order small samples of PEScience if you’re new to protein powder recipes. If you like it, you can use my affiliate discount code mason to save 15% off on PEScience products.

Aside from the protein powder, the other ingredients should be pretty straightforward. The only other tip I would give would be to use a food scale to get the ingredient weight spot on. No bake recipes like these peanut butter protein bites can be tricky to handle if you don’t get it right.

No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bites

No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Yield: 8 protein bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Low fat protein bites made with rolled oats, powdered peanut butter, and protein powder.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C (60g) Rolled Oats
  • 2 scoops (62g) Vanilla Protein Powder*
  • 1/4 C (26g) PB2 or Powdered Peanut Butter
  • 1 medium (100g peeled) Banana, mashed
  • 1/2 Tbsp (11g) Honey
  • 2 Tbsp (28g) Mini Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. Mix the oats, protein powder, and powdered peanut butter together.
  2. Mash the banana in a separate bowl before adding to the dry ingredients. Stir until the mixture starts to come together before adding the honey and chocolate chips. Finishing stirring until one large ball forms.**
  3. Divide the mixture into 8 pieces and place them on a piece of parchment paper or foil. Roll each piece between your palms to smooth. You can spray your hands with a tiny bit of cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  4. Refrigerate protein bites and serve chilled.

Notes

*I used PEScience Select whey and casein. For notes on using other protein powders, see post above.

**If you're using different ingredients, add the banana and honey slowly to avoid over hydrating the mixture. If you accidentally add too much, you can either add more dry ingredients or try refrigerating/freezing the mixture before forming the protein bites.

Each protein bite has 2 WW Smart Points (blue plan).

    • You could divide the macros from the protein as-is by the number of protein bites you make and replace that with the macros for your protein powder. Or you could just enter all the ingredients into Myfitnesspal or a tracker and divide the total by the number of bites you make. Hope that helps!

    These are beyond awesome! Made them for myself, and my weight training crazy fitness sons discovered them and decided they love them too! So now I have to triple the recipe every time I make it! I don’t use chocolate chips, but in one batch I do put Cacaio powder for myself. Because I love chocolate, but I have one son who doesn’t. So his just gets the PB fit powder. For my sticky sweetener I will use either agave, or a sugar-free maple syrup. These are our go to treats when we are looking for something sweet!

    I made these using PEScience Cake Pop protein, but otherwise no modifications, and they turned out fantastic! They are currently in my freezer – one because I want to try them as recommended, but also to keep me from eating them all in one sitting. I was able to form nice round bites by wetting my fingers before rolling them as well so in additional to being tasty, they are very photo worthy! 😉 Thanks for the great recipe!
