When you need a filling post-workout snack, or something small that fits neatly into your bag, protein balls are a fuss-free solution. The only problem is, they tend to loaded with sugar. But we noticed members taking the DIY route, using oats, powdered nut butters and tasty little extras like dried fruits and spices to make tasty snack balls that are lower in sugar than supermarket versions. Here’s our chocolaty, no-bake version of the trend…


Peanut butter powder

12 g, 2 tbsp

Porridge oats

90 g


50 g

Dark Chocolate

30 g, chopped or chocolate chips


¼ teaspoon(s)

Vanilla Extract

½ teaspoon(s), level


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the powdered nut butter with 1 tbsp cold water to make a paste. Add the oats, honey, chocolate chips, salt and vanilla and stir to combine.
  2. Line a plate with baking paper. Divide the mixture into 12 portions and roll into balls using slightly damp hands to prevent sticking.
  3. Put the balls on the plate and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
