Chocolate Protein Rounds [No Baking Required]

My friend made me a batch of these for my birthday last week and I devoured way too many. Like wayyyy too many. But who cares, you only have a birthday once a year, right? Luckily, these things are pretty healthy and help me get my daily protein intake, so I wasn’t too worried. She had given me the recipe a long time ago, but I just never got around to making them. The original recipe doesn’t necessarily call for chocolate protein powder, but it’s all we have so I decided to give it a go. Really glad I did–super easy. And it’s nice not to bake when it’s 80 degrees out! I altered it somewhat and it turned out well!

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 cups chocolate protein powder (you could do vanilla, though)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2/3 cup Silk Vanilla Unsweetened Almondmilk (you can use regular)
  • 1 tbsp dried cherries (you can use any dried fruit)
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl

  • Mix the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. It’s tough at first because of the peanut butter, but I just whisked it down until it was well-mixed and of one mixture
  • Slowly mix the wet into the dry ingredient bowl. First I used a whisk, but in the end I had to use a wooden spoon to really mix it well.

  • Take out a cookie sheet and place wax paper on top. Then scoop out bite-sized pieces of the mixture and line it up on the wax paper.

  • Put into the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and then wrap them individually with wax paper, otherwise it’s a sticky mess. Place in fridge until ready to eat!

I am so glad the chocolate protein powder worked out. This is such a good snack before or after a workout. Gives you a bit of energy, but doesn’t weigh you down and has a good amount of protein to keep your muscles happy. It’s an unbelievably easy recipe and a great way to stay hungry and fit!

    Do you think you could substitute the peanut butter for something?

    I was just wondering how much they firm up after awhile in the fridge?

    I’m definitely going to try them, thanks!

    Do you think I could use creamy peanut butter instead of chunky? I know it’s lower in protein, but it’s all I have for now.

    One tablespoon of dried fruit sure seems like a very small quantity compared to other ingredients. Is that the right quantity?

    Fantastic! I used whey protein from TPW, and it came out very nice.
