5 Ingredient Protein Balls
Simple, easy and all you need is a bowl and a bit of elbow grease.
These protein balls are super tasty and easy to make. Most recipes call for lots of ingredients and a food processor – this recipe is not about that. This recipe is a simple recipe to help you make healthier choices by making easy to make snacks for your day.
Many of us don’t get enough protein at lunch – which often causes that early afternoon Grehlin (the hormone that ignites hunger) start to grumble. These little power houses offer a certain amount of sweetness while being packed full of health protein, fats and carbs.
No Food Processor Required
They can be stored easily – so double the quantity and make a big batch and freeze.
The Right Protein Powder
For my recipe I used two protein powders. I am extremely fussy about the quality of protein I use and try and source good companies and not loaded with hidden nasties.
For those in the UK, I always use Innermost (yep I brought a bag to Australia with me). Great team and you can find most of their products online at websites or in F45 gyms in London.
For those in Australia, I have been using Bondi Protein Co – which you can find in Chemist Warehouse or online.
Get Experimental with Flavours
You can easily vary up the ingredients based on your protein powder choice. Pea protein? Why not use pistachio’s instead of choc chips? Strawberry whey? Why not try some white choc?
Once you’ve nailed the base you can really swap ingredients in and out to suit your taste.
These balls are great for upping your Protein goals but also can be used as part of any 8 week challenge include the F45 8 Week Challenge. F45 Protein Balls can be made to be vegan but swapping the honey for maple syrup.

Easy No Bake Protein Balls
5 Ingredient No Bake Protein Balls. These simple and easy protein balls can be made using just a bowl and some old fashioned elbow grease.
- 192g of Rolled Oats
- 68g of Nut Butter
- 2 TBSP of Chocolate Chips
- 60g Protein Powder
- 34g Honey
- If you want to roll the balls in desiccated coconut it gives a really nice visual but is not necessary.
In a bowl, combine all the dry products mixing evenly to get good consistency
Mix the nut butter and honey together using a spoon and add to the dry mixture.
Mix using a metal spoon to try and get an even mixture. Once mixed, start to use your hands as the warmth will help combine the products further.
Once mixture is relatively consistent, grab a bowl of warm water and dip your fingers in and grab a small ball (around 30g) to start rolling into a ball shape. The water helps bind the mixture and then you can roll in the coconut before setting aside.
Once rolled, keep a couple in the fridge and freeze the rest.
