How to Make Cookie Dough Protein Bites:

It’s really just a matter of measuring out your ingredients and combining them together in a mixing bowl!

For the recipe, you’ll need natural peanut butter, a vanilla plant-based protein powder (that is if you want this recipe to be vegan!), oats, flax seeds (or chia/hemp!), vanilla extract, agave syrup, and dairy-free chocolate chips.

Add all ingredients to your bowl and with a spoon or clean hands, mix the ingredients until well-combined. The mixture should resemble a thick cookie dough! You may also need 1-2 tbsp water to help mix if you find it is quite sticky when mixing.

Scoop out the mixture (1 generous tablespoon per protein bite) and roll between your hands to form balls. Place the cookie dough protein bites on a plate or in a container and store in the fridge.

Notes About Cookie Dough Protein Bites:

Enjoy these protein bites with a glass of plant-based milk! I love doing so for a satisfying snack.

You can use any nut or seed butter you like. I typically choose peanut butter because let’s be real, I’m obsessed with all things peanut butter.

If you’re not vegan, feel free to use a whey protein and/or honey in this recipe.
