These no bake peanut butter protein balls are the perfect healthy treat! They are gluten free, grain free, vegan, and beyond delicious.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Vega Protein Made Simple Vanilla)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup salted creamy no-stir peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (no need to melt)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Combine: Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use a silicone spatula to mix very well until incorporated.
  2. Cool: Place the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes to firm slightly. (Don't skip this step!)
  3. Form: Use your hands to form 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper or a non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Chill: Carefully place the balls in a parchment paper-lined container and chill in the fridge for at least one hour. Balls should stay stored in the fridge and will stay good for at least a week. Enjoy!
