Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bites that are INSANELY Delicious

Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bites that are INSANELY Delicious

I originally saw this recipe on Instagram being made by Amber Lancaster.  I took the bones of that recipe (butterscotch chips, peanut butter, protein and peanuts) and tweaked it to make it even tastier for our family.



I decided to test out some different ingredients and after several rounds came up with this recipe.  It’s seriously amazing.  When I make a batch, they disappear so fast.  They are obviously not low calorie, but they pack a protein punch.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 24 balls


  • 1 bag chips chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, any flavor will work
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein
  • 1/2 cup oats (ground)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup peanuts


  • Melt chips in a glass bowl in the microwave. I use about 3/4-7/8 of the bag of chips as opposed to the whole bag. Microwave at stop to stir every 15-30 seconds to prevent scorching.
  • Once fully melted, add protein and oats until well combined.
  • Add peanut butter then peanuts.
  • Refrigerate immediately until ready to serve.


My preference is this chocolate protein from GNC.
To make your life easier, either use parchment paper or a silicone muffin trayThis cookie dough scoop is wonderful!

      Do you use a certain brand of peanut butter, chocolate chips, oats or peanuts, or just whatever you can find?

          I don’t think I have any of the ingredients, except peanut butter maybe and not even much of that I think lol, so I have to get all of the ingredients. Protein powders are a little pricey, but I really want to make these!

          Silly question, did you have to grind the oats and they came that way? I was looking them up (never bought them before) so I don’t know much about them

            I ground the oats in my nutri-bullet. You don’t have to add in oats, you can leave them out if you prefer. My hubby prefers them without oats, but I like them with oats!

            Thank you! I really want to try them, but may have to wait until the protein powder goes on sale as it’s pricey and I wouldn’t use it for much else 😬

    I’ve been wanting to try these ever since you first told us about them on your instagram stories…. but alas, have cut out all sugar… maybe in the future I’ll have to give them a go.
