peanut butter cup protein balls

Peanut Butter Cup Protein Bites (Gluten Free)

  • Author: Liz Moody


  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup smooth, unsalted peanut butter (you can sub a nut or seed butter of your choice!)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Garden of Life unflavored or vanilla collagen peptides
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
  • Pinch of fine grain sea salt 
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the oat flour, peanut butter, vanilla extract, collagen, 1/4 cup of the honey and the pinch of fine grain sea salt. Use your hands and kind of knead it—it’ll be a thick mixture! Divide the mixture into two equal sized portions.
  2. Grab one of the portions and use your hands to press and roll one marble sized balls with it. Set those balls aside. To the leftover mixture, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of honey, cacao powder, and avocado oil. Use your hands to knead and mix until smooth, then divide THAT mixture into the same amount of pieces as you made PB balls (so if you rolled 15 balls from the straight PB mixture, make 15 pieces from the chocolate mixture).
  3. Press each chocolate piece into a disc shape, then fold it around a PB ball, using your fingers to press and squeeze so the entire PB ball is covered. Roll it gently in your palms so it’s smooth again; repeat with all remaining balls. 
  4. Store in the fridge for up to a week or for 6 months in the freezer. Enjoy! Makes 15-20 balls.
