Super Chocolatey Protein Bites

An easy to make, no-bake, high protein energy ball are filled with oats, almond butter, cacao nibs, and more! These quick snacks or morning breakfast bites are sweetened with agave, flavored with vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup chocolate plant protein powder
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (make your own!)
  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 3-4 tbsp almond milk


In a large bowl, mix in your dry: oats, protein powder, cacao powder, hemp seeds, and sea salt.

Add the almond butter, agave, and vanilla extract to the mixture.
Fold in the cacao nibs.

Add almond milk as needed to moisten the mixture. The consistency should be thick and sticky. You don’t want any dry parts, but the mixture shouldn't be too wet.

Scoop roughly one tablespoon at a time from the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue until all the mixture has been rolled into your bites. At this point, the protein balls are ready to eat. 

Refrigerate for one week.
