Does it keep? 1 Week


  • 1/2 cup creamy salted peanut butter (or almond, cashew, or sunbutter)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or sub finely chopped dates)
  • 2 Tbsp vegan protein powder* (optional - just omit if you don’t have any)
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats*
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit (i.e. dried strawberries, cherries, blueberries, cranberries)


  1. To a large mixing bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup, protein powder, rolled oats, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, and dried fruit of choice. Mix until well combined. If too dry/crumbly, add more peanut butter or maple syrup. If too sticky or wet, add a little bit more oats or flaxseed meal.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Then scoop out 1 1/2 Tbsp amounts (I like using this scoop) and roll into balls. The "dough" should yield about 13-14 balls (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).
  3. Enjoy immediately and store well-sealed leftovers in the refrigerator for 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month (or more).


*If gluten-free and cannot tolerate oats, try subbing a mixture of chopped nuts, shredded unsweetened coconut, and more dried fruit.
