  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 15-20 bites 1x



  • 1 cup old fashioned oats – I like quick oats b/c they are smaller
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (almond butter would work fine too)
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon espresso, finely ground (instant coffee could work too, but look for a dark roast and maybe add a 1/2 tablespoon more)
  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Add in the peanut butter and honey and stir until everything is well combined and all the dry ingredients stick together. I use a hard silicone spatula to really mash and mush the ingredients together.
  3. If you have a small scoop use it to measure out the portions and roll into balls. Using a scoop helps keep all the bites the same size. If you don’t have a scoop just use a spoon. Linked here is the #40 scoop I use for all my protein bites.


  1. Feel free to mix up, add in and swap out ingredients of your choice. I feel like some chopped walnuts would be really good in this mix as well.
  2. If the mixture is too sticky, add a few more oats.
