From basic protein to cherry chocolate chip, I’ve made my share of protein bites.

I can’t call them protein balls without giggling. It’s a problem.

Protein bites are pretty easy to make and these crunchy peanut butter protein bites are no exception. Although these chocolate chip energy bites are more ingredient heavy than your typical recipe, most require only a handful of ingredients and about 10 minutes start to finish.

I’m a huge fan of protein bites (aka protein balls) because they come together quickly, taste too good to be healthy and make an easy on-the-go snack or late-night “I’ve gotta stop eating the Oreos stashed in the cupboard” craving fighter. They’re also great post workout or as a halftime pick-me-up. My kids love ’em as much as I do, and because they’re pretty dang healthy, I have no problem offering them as an after-school snack option.

These crunchy peanut butter protein bites feature quick oats, natural crunchy peanut butter, Purely Inspired organic vanilla protein, powdered peanut butter (Purely Inspired has that too!), honey and dark chocolate. If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate, try mini semisweet chocolate chips. You could even try milk chocolate chips if that’s your thing.

I love how the peanuts from the crunchy peanut butter give these protein bites added texture and crunch. It’s truly delightful!
