Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip


1 cup quick oats

½ cup ground flaxseed (excellent source of protein and omega 3)

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup natural peanut butter (or any type of nut butter)

4 medjool dates

½ cup of honey or agave

2 tablespoons maple syrup


¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut

¼ cup cacao powder to make them chocolate

1 scoop of protein powder


Step 1

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

In a food processor or blender, add peanut butter, honey, maple syrup and dates. Pulse until ingredients are well combined. If making without a food processor, chop the dates finely and mix all of the wet ingredients together in a large sized bowl (may need to microwave the peanut butter

Step 3

Combine the dry ingredients with the wet and stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon. You may also need to use your hands work the dough.

Step 4

Roll into balls using a teaspoon to make a consistent size. *It helps to form the balls if your hands stay clean and wet. Keep a bowl of water next to you while rolling them! I usually take the bowl with me to the kitchen table to roll the balls!

Step 5

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. Enjoy!

Note: These are all about finding the perfect consistency so the measurements are just a guideline. If they are to mushy and soft add more oats or if it is too crumbly add more honey or maple syrup. They should be sticky enough to form balls.
