These no bake protein bites are a classic recipe on my blog and for good reason. They call for just 6 ingredients and 5-10 minutes of prep time. And each protein bite has 7 grams of protein with only 100 calories.

Not to mention, they taste like little balls of s’mores cookie dough and virtually melt in your mouth! 

These no bake protein bites taste just like balls of s'mores cookie dough. There are bits of marshmallow and chocolate in every single melt-in-your-mouth bite. You'll never believe each protein bite has 7 grams of protein and just 100 calories!

How to Make S’mores No Bake Protein Bites

I’ll run you through the ingredients and modifications first, followed by the recipe steps. You can find the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. 

S’mores protein bites ingredients: 

  • graham cracker crumbs, rolled oats, and protein powder
  • marshmallow bits or mini marshmallows
  • chocolate chips
  • your choice of milk

dry ingredients for s'mores protein bites

The biggest variable in this recipe will be the protein powder. I use PEScience Select in nearly all my protein powder recipes which is a blend of whey and casein protein. This blend makes it a bit thicker than whey-only or plant-based protein powders.

If you’re using another protein powder, you’ll want to add the milk very slowly to avoid over hydrating and ending up with super sticky, hard to handle protein bites!

The photo above, for example, is after adding 1/4 cup or 60mL of milk. The remaining two tablespoons takes it from crumbly to perfect (see below).

You should be able to handle the mixture to roll between your palms. If it’s too sticky, you can add more dry ingredients but the easiest fix is to add liquid slowly and avoid it in the first place. 

Other Ingredient Notes

If you have trouble finding marshmallow bits, you can use mini marshmallows. In fact, this recipe originally called for mini marshmallows. I prefer the crispier texture of the bits after refrigerating, though.

You can also see the original s’mores protein bites used regular dark chocolate chips. You can get creative with these two add-ins, just add the milk slowly! Have I said that yet? 

As for the graham crackers, you can crush whole graham crackers gram for gram. If you’re not in the US and have trouble finding graham crackers, use a digestive biscuit or some type of crushed sweet biscuit/cracker/cookie. 

Final No Bake Protein Bites Recipe Notes

The recipe makes 8 protein bites, but you could split them up to be as large or small as you’d like. If you’d like them to be perfectly sized, you can place the entire ball on a food scale to get its weight and divide by the number of protein bites you’re making.

    Just ate lunch, finished chores around the house, put the baby to bed…(so far all my food intake has been recorded and on track) AND the damn sweet tooth hits! I ran into kitchen and whipped these up before i could shove 8 chocolate kisses in my mouth. I had to make a ton of subs I didn’t have a ton of the ingredients on hand. I followed your measurements on all ingredients except I only had saltines as cracker and only use 10g instead of 26g of g.cracker. I subbed in chocolate protein powder for vanilla and only a sprinkle of stevia. I only had almond milk on hand and substituted that. Mixed them and froze them, ate one before it made it in freezer and just 1 curbed my sweet tooth! I love protein bites..I can keep a small container in freezer and reach in and grab a healthy high protein snack to hit that sweet craving after lunch. Kids wont touch them either, win win! Thank you!!!!!

  • I’m obsessed with these. I made them without protein adjusted a bit and my kids are too. They feel so cool because they are eating “protein”…. 🤣😂 love how quick and easy these are! They freeze well too (I think Mason mentions in one of these that your supposed to freeze them first – because the texture after thawed is 😍😍)

    Probably one of my favorite recipes! It was so quick and easy to make. I used my Ladyboss Lean protein powder for this recipe, the texture is perfect for making things like this, and it is already sweetened with Stevia. I love making these as a snack when I want something sweet, and I LOVE s’mores and it definitely hits the spot.

  • These are delicious!! They are the perfect little bite to get rid of a sweet craving and they are packed with protein so you can stay on track with your macros! Next time I make them I’m definitely making a double batch 😉 my hands got a bit sticky when rolling the balls so I may have done something wrong but I would
    Probably spray some 0 cal oil on my hands next time!

  • Hello!
    I have a question.I am a 14 years old teenager and I love cooking healthy snacks, but in 70% of them there is protein powder in the recipe, so is it ok for me to eat foods with protein powder or should I search for other recipes?Thank you in advance!

    • You could probably get away with omitting them and reducing the milk or adding more graham cracker crumbs. Or you could experiment with crisped rice or maybe even puffed rice. Let me know if you give it a go!

  • Perfect snack for my sweet tooth craving and great way to top of my macros for my day! Definitely recommend dark chocolate chips, so good!

  • I made these with the protein I have on hand (batch 1 = ReKaged, chocolate and batch 2 = Arms Race Nutrition, s’mores). They are soooo good BUT Mason isn’t kidding when he warns you about adding too much liquid. I’ve tried and failed both times but they still came out delicious. I’ll continue to make these with different ingredients!

  • These are SO ADDICTING! I don’t think I’ve come across a recipe I don’t love. These are perfect to help me when I constantly want to eat s’mores.
