Easy No Bake Almond Butter Protein Bomb Recipe

Make snack time healthy and delicious with this easy-to-follow almond butter protein bomb recipe. Get the full ingredients list and how-to’s!!

A few weeks ago I was standing in line at the checkout counter at Home Goods. You know, where you’ve shopped for too long and you’re craving a healthy snack like an almond butter protein bomb? That was me. With a cart full of home decorating items and needing a little pick-me-up snack I was getting desperate!

Since I’ve been eating healthy and on a weight loss mission, finding a quick snack is no easy feat when you are staring down a big bag of chips, popcorn, and enough gummy bears in all different colors to satisfy every sweet tooth out there.

I looked thru all of those bags near the register in search of one that had healthy fats or at least something that wasn’t full of sugar. Just when I was thinking I was out of luck, I saw a great snack. I found a delicious bag of protein bombs as I call them. By the time I got to the car they were open and I must say they were pretty good!

When I went back the next time, I couldn’t find anything similar. I went to several shops searching for them. They were that good. Now I was on a mission to find another bag. No such luck!

That is when I decided I was going to get out my chia seeds and come up with my own almond butter protein energy bomb recipe. Before I began, however, I search and scoured several energy ball recipes online.

Are protein bombs healthy for you?

Protein balls are a great source of omega-3s! While they are super satisfying and filling they are not what I would call a low-calorie snack but are filled with healthy fats.

Is almond butter a good source of protein?

Let’s get this out there in the open! I love almond butter.

Plus, it’s a super alternative for those with peanut allergies and only 2 tablespoons contains 6 grams of protein!

So yes! It’s really good for you!

Healthy protein options

Many of the recipes I found used hemp seeds, almond milk, dried cranberries, or whey protein powder. While these are all great options to add, I wanted an easy recipe for small balls, not bars, and without using different protein powders or cocoa butter.

Most keto diet recipes of this sort call for using a food processor or cocoa powder. What I came up with for my protein ball recipe is much easier and uses simple ingredients you probably already have in your home and uses only one mixing bowl. Oh, and a wooden spoon!

This recipe from The Spruce Eats uses peanut butter and vanilla extract. Another great option.

How to make almond butter protein balls?

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, and equal amounts of almond butter, or natural peanut butter. Next, I added the flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds. Following that pour in your honey or maple syrup.

What I love about using basic ingredients are the wonderful flavor options you can use that give you the best options for your personal taste and palette.

Lastly, add a cup of chocolate chips. I love dark chocolate but didn’t have any dark chocolate chips so regular chips had to do.

Using a baking sheet, line the pan with parchment paper, and place the dough balls on top, separating them a little bit.
