DIY Healthy Protein Power Bites

Ariana Allen

Eating healthy is usually the last thing on your mind when you are rushing from class to class to work to clubs.

What if I told you there is a quick, 5 ingredient, no bake snack you make that is not only delicious, but portable, and filling? It sounds too good to be true right? I’m happy to say that it isn’t.

I found this recipe on my trusty go to- Pinterest, courtesy of Chef Savvy and made them myself one Sunday afternoon. Ready to make your own?

Protein Power Bites Recipe


  • 1 cup- Oatmeal, old fashioned, dry
  • 1/2 cup- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tbsps- Honey
  • 2/3 cup- Peanut Butter Creamy
  • 1/2 cup- Chia Seeds


  • Add all the ingredients into a medium bowl and mix together.
  • Next, place the bowl in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes to allow the mixture to harden a bit.
  • After the 15-30 time is up, roll the mixture into 12 balls and store in the fridge for an 1 hour before eating.

The Protein Power Bites can be stored in the fridge for about a week. If they won’t be consumed within a week, you can longer in the freezer so they can last longer.

Get Creative!

This is just one version of the recipe. You can really get creative with the ingredients for variety or dietary restrictions. For example:

  • Honey -> Agave
  • Peanut Butter -> Any Creamy Nut Butter, like almond, sunflower, cashew, etc. if you are allergic to PB.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips -> Dark Chocolate chips
  • Seeds ->  Ground Flaxseeds or protein powder

I saw other recipes that add dried fruit like cranberries, raisins, or coconut flakes.

These are really the best because it tastes like dessert but portioned to curb sugar cravings and fill you up in between meals or on the go.
