No Bake Protein Energy Balls

No Bake Protein Energy Balls

If you love no-bake healthy snacks then you will love these power balls! They are literally bursting with goodness (lots of protein & soluble fibre) and taste incredible!


I made the version using protein powder in this video, along with regular peanut butter, but have also included a recipe without protein powder below too (scroll down for it!).


I have to say a huge thank you to MacroMitch for inspiring this recipe.. it was great meeting you Mitch at BodyPower!!



Protein Balls No Bake

No Bake Protein Energy Balls


  • 60g protein powder
  • 80g jumbo oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 20g nut butter
  • 30g raisins/cranberries/sultanas


  1. Peel & mash the banana before adding the peanut butter (I found that if you heat these two in a pan first it makes adding the other ingredients a lot easier!).
  2. Add the oats and protein powder and mix well, then stir in your dried fruit.
  3. Use your hands to shape the mixture into a big dough ball (check out the video for what I mean!) before breaking off pieces the size of a small golf ball and rolling it into a ball shape.
  4. Place the protein balls on a plate lined with baking paper and repeat until all of the mixture has gone (I challenge you not to have a nibble!!).. I made 14.
  5. Place in the fridge for an hour before enjoying or store in an air tight container in the fridge 


You can always add more banana, nut butter or even milk if the mixture seems dry after mixing (or add more protein powder/oats if the mixture seems too sticky or wet!).

Makes 14 Balls.


Here’s the recipe without using protein powder!

      Oh really! I think it depends on the protein powder – we used Sativa (vegan one) which can be dry – use a smaller banana next time! xx

    Hi, I really want to try these but I’m allergic to peanuts! What could I use as a substitute?
