  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1.5 C rolled oats
  • 3 Tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 C maple syrup
  • 1 C peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp mini chocolate chips


  • In a small bowl, mix together your chia and water and set aside to pre-soak while you measure and mix your other ingredients. Give the chia a stir part way through the next step
  • In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients (except your chia and water). When almost all of the way combined, add in your pre-soaked chia and any remaining water and stir until uniform
  • Roll into 1" balls by rolling a scoop of dough into a ball between your hands. You may need to gently press the dough together to help it form into a ball as you roll
  • Place protein balls on a cookie sheet (or in a storage container) lined with parchment paper
  • Store protein balls in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week


*Note on pre-soaking your chia seeds: doing this step makes a big difference in the final texture of your protein balls! Since chia seeds can soak up to 10x their weight in liquid, putting your chia seeds into this peanut butter protein ball recipe dry leaves you with a very dry energy ball.
