100-Calorie No Bake S’mores Protein Bites

I’ve had the world’s worst sweet tooth lately which for better or worse has led to more experiments with high protein sweets recipes. During the holiday season, I made a lot of baked sweets and more elaborate recipes. This time of year, however, is busy and time is of the essence.
That’s where no bake recipes come in strong to save the day. These protein bites are as simple as mixing ingredients in a bowl and popping in the freezer for a few minutes. Better yet, they pack 10 grams of protein and only 100 calories per protein bite. I think you’ll be amazed at how something with true s’mores ingredients can have macros like this.
Ingredients for No Bake S’mores Protein Bites
Like I mentioned above, you’ll be using all the s’mores ingredients—chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows. The only decision you’ll need to make is whether you want to use mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, and marshmallow bits or full-size mini marshmallows, whole graham crackers, and chocolate chips. A tough decision, I know.
I prefer the bigger chunks in my bites, but you can play around with this. I’ve included the scale weight in the recipe in case you decide to switch things up. I’ll say one pro for using the bigger versions is that you get either a chocolate chip or marshmallow literally in every single bite, making it feel like there’s no way you’re snacking on a healthy treat.
Best Protein Powder for Recipes
You can use any protein you’d like, but I recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey, PEScience Select Whey and Casein, or Dymatize 100% Whey. I’m not affiliated with any of these companies, I just love the products.
The macros are with Gold Standard Whey.

Final Tips for Making These No Bake Protein Bites
If you run into any trouble forming these protein bites, you can spray your hands with cooking spray or chill the dough briefly.You can see this in action in the video below where I make my fudge brownie protein balls.
And since different protein powders have different consistencies, be sure to add the liquid slowly as to not over hydrate and turn your dough into a sticky mess.

No Bake S'mores Protein Bites
Quick and easy 100-calorie protein bites with all your favorite s'mores ingredients.
- 2 Tbsp (10g) Quick Oats
- 1/4 C (26g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 1 large cracker, crumbled
- 1 1/2 scoop (45g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 1/2 Tbsp Stevia or 0-Calorie Sweetener
- 1/4 C (10g) Mini Marshmallows
- 1/2 Tbsp (7g) Chocolate Chips
- 2-3 Tbsp (30-45mL) Almond Milk or any low-cal liquid (start on the lower end and add as needed)
Line a small plate or dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix dry ingredients together, adding marshmallows and chocolate chips last. Mix well.
Slowly add almond milk or liquid, stirring in gradually. You'll think you need more milk but aim for as little milk as possible. The mixture may almost look crumbly. That's ideal for forming into balls.
When the mixture is evenly mixed, form into balls using your hands and roll between your palms to smooth. If your mixture is too crumbly, add 1 tsp of liquid at a time. If it's too moist to form into balls, add more protein powder or oats. (If you double this recipe, which I recommend, you may want to rinse your hands half way through. The more balls you form, the more the other balls will stick to residue on your hands.)
This recipe makes 4 balls around the size of golf balls. Add balls to parchment paper and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Store leftover balls in the freezer and thaw for 5-10 minutes before eating.
Each protein bite has 3 Smart Points.
