Energy bite and energy ball recipes are a dime a dozen, but it’s difficult to find a recipe that contains enough protein to keep you satisfied. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bites are no bake, vegan and gluten free and have the protein pumped up with chocolate protein powder. For two protein bites, you’re getting an impressive amount of protein – 14 grams! Plus 4 grams of filling fiber and for only 200 calories.

These protein bites taste like chocolate chip cookie dough and I’m officially obsessed. They keep well in the fridge for 2 weeks or in the freezer for 4 months or so (but they never last that long in my house). The oats provide fiber, the peanut butter provides healthy fats and they don’t contain any refined sugar. All of these elements make them a filling snack that helps stabilize your blood sugar levels for a steady supply of energy (and fewer cravings).

The key to delicious protein bites is you have to love the taste and texture of the protein powder you’re using.
