Vegan Cookie Dough Protein Balls

I have always found it SO hard to find/make good protein balls that aren't packed full of sugar and additives or that don't taste grainy and terrible.

After many, many, attempts at making cookie dough protein balls, I have come up with a delicious recipe that I'm super happy with!

They're little balls of creamy, vanilla, cookie dough goodness with chunks of chocolate chips to really satisfy your sweet tooth cravings!

Makes 24 balls = 12 serves DF, VN


6 tsp Macro Mike ‘cheezecake pb+’ powder & 1/2 cup water (OR 1/2 cup nut butter)

2 cups oat flour

2/3 cup vanilla plant-based protein powder (80g)

4 tbsp maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk

1/3 - 1/2 cup almond meal

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy-free choc chips for DF and vegan)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the peanut butter powder and water.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oat flour, protein powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk. Add the peanut butter mix and then gradually add the almond meal until a dough consistency forms. Then, mix in the chocolate chips.

  3. Roll the mixture into ~26 walnut-sized balls.

Note: To make oat flour, you can just blend rolled oats until flour consistency.
