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!
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
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.
