No Bake Protein Balls

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

Soft, chewy and simple to make these high-protein balls are perfect to grab for an on-the-go breakfast, a quick lunch or an after-school snack for kids.

As a busy mom, I am consistently looking for high-protein snacks for myself and the kids. I have tried a lot of pre-packaged protein bars and I just can not seem to get past the taste and texture that is associated with most of them on the market. After trying a few different recipes and not getting the end result I wanted, I decided to create a perfect high-protein snack using the ingredient that we loved.

Soft, chewy and simple to make these will be your favourite snack this back to school year.

The main ingredient in this recipe is oats. There are about 10 grams of protein in uncooked oats which is why I choose to make the oats the base.=

No Bake Protein Balls


  • 2 cups uncooked oats ( I like Canadian Quick Oats)

  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup of honey

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • a splash of vanilla extract


  1. Mix all of the above ingredients into a medium-sized bowl.

  2. Cover and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour

  3. Once chilled, scoop into small balls and press tightly to compact. They should stick together without being sticky. If you find they are too dry you can add a couple tbsp of extra honey. Make your balls whatever size is right for your family.

  4. Store in an air-tight container in a cupboard or longer in the fridge.

This is a great base recipe that you can alter by adding flax, hemp heart or M&M instead of chocolate chips. Leave a comment and let me know how you and your family like this recipe.
