These peanut butter protein balls are a simple, healthy, and satisfying snack that provides a boost of energy throughout the day. They're quick to make, packed with nutrients, and incredibly easy to customize.
Combine the rolled oats, protein powder, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and salt in a bowl. Whisk the dry ingredients together until well combined.
Once the dry ingredients are stirred, add the peanut butter, agave, and vanilla extract. The mixture should be thick and hold its shape when rolled.
Gently fold in the chocolate chunks and chopped pecans last, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place them on the sheet.
For the perfect peanut butter protein ball texture, let them chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy them as an on-the-go snack or post-workout treat.
