I love protein bites for a quick snack on the go. This Peanut Butter Balls snack recipe is a very basic recipe with lots of room for variation. You can make it with an alternative nut butter, like almond or cashew, but you may need to add in a little water and olive oil to combine. You could also substitute the milk powder for protein powder, add in your favorite seasonings like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or apple spice, as well as add in shredded coconut or cacao nibs. The possibilities are seasonal and endless. 

12 servings


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk powder or coconut milk powder
  • 1 cup uncooked oats (may substitute whole grain cereal or quinoa flakes) 


  1. Mix honey and peanut butter together and add the oats.
  2. Roll into 12 balls and refrigerate. 

This recipe is from my well-being retreat at Canyon Ranch.
