No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Is there a better combination than peanut butter and banana? Sure, there’s the peanut butter and chocolate tandem, but this recipe has that, too. These no bake protein bites are packed with flavor and have unbelievable macros when compared to regular “oatmeal energy bites” or things like that.

With over 8 grams of protein and just 2 grams of carbs each, they are perfect for a snack around your workouts. Munch on eight two or three of these on your drive to the gym and you’ll have the perfect amount of protein and carbs to fuel your training session. And since the whole process should take 5-10 minutes from start to finish, you can make these right now! 

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. If you’re looking for other recipes to try with a sample pack, try my Butterfinger protein oatmeal, high protein baked oats, or protein monkey bread.

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

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.


  • 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


  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.


*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).

I used the Lily chocolate chips (no sugar added), Aloha vanilla protein (plant based protein powder) and added 10g chia seeds and they were delicious! Next time I might add a drizzle of peanut butter into the batter!

This was my first recipe I tried from Mason. These are so good. They help curb my appetite for sugar when I need or crave chocolate.

These bites are a staple in our house for myself and my family. I always have to double the recipe to ensure we have enough for the week. I also like to add chia seeds to ours. How do you get yours so perfectly round? They tend to get sticky as I am rolling them so any tips for that would be awesome. I do dap my fingers in water to help.

I made these when I had some extra carbs for my macro night cap. It was quick and sweet snack to make late at night when I wanted a quick sweet macro/protein friendly night cap :)

I varied these up a couple different ways by adding chia seeds, some pumpkin pie spice and substituted some canned pumpkin for a little fall flavor. Lots of room for differences with vegan chocolate chips, or puffed rice instead of oatmeal.
