These no bake chocolate chip peanut butter cookie dough protein balls are tasty, portable and packed with wholesome ingredients – great for snacking!
I know what you’re thinking. Brittany, why the heck are you posting another ball recipe?!? That’s the last thing the internet needs right now. But you know what? They’re incredibly tasty because they feature the ultimate culinary duo: peanut butter and chocolate. AND they taste like cookie dough… what could be better?
If my flavor introduction is not enough to tempt you, there’s more – these protein balls have only six ingredients and take about 10 minutes to whip up!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Ball Ingredients
vanilla protein powder
natural peanut butter – look for peanut butter where the only ingredients are peanut butter and salt.
unsweetened almond milk
dark mini chocolate chips – I love the EnjoyLife brand because they’re dairy free.
Why Are These Protein Balls so Healthy?
On the nutrition front, they’re vegan and gluten free with a great balance of protein, healthy fats and smart carbs – perfect for before or after your workout, as a mid-afternoon pick me up or a late-night snack. Heck, I’d even eat them for breakfast. I mean, they DO have oatmeal.
Peanut butter has a good amount of protein, but I decided to add a bit more by including a little protein powder. This snack (or breakfast) will actually keep you satisfied.
