What ingredients do I need to make these protein bites?

  • Old fashioned 100% whole grain oats-I don’t recommend using quick oats. They don’t have the same texture like the old fashioned oats do.
  • Protein powder- I like to use Devotion Protein Powder– The Angel Food Cake Devotion Protein Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Low point peanut butter 
  • Honey
  • Almond or vanilla extract
  • Lily’s (no sugar added) Dark Chocolate Chip )
  • Unsweetened coconut (optional, points are the same with or without it)
  • Unsweetened almond milk

What other ingredients can I add to these protein bites?

What low point peanut or nut butter do you recommend?

Well, my two favorite whipped peanut butters Jif Whips and Peter Pan 1/3 less fat whipped have both been discontinued-but I have since found a few other brands that I LOVE!

This Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter is only 100 calories, 3 smartpoints for 2 Tablespoons, 4 grams of protein, and is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Palm Oil Free, and Kosher.

You can find it online on Amazon HERE.


What kind of Protein Powder do you recommend?

I use like to use Angel Food Cake Devotion Nutrition Protein Powder. It’s 1 WW point per scoop, 0 sugar, and low carb.

You can get 10% off your order using promo code PD10.

  1. In a mixing bowl combine oats, protein powder, cinnamon. Stir in peanut butter, honey and almond extract.

  3. Little by little add in almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time, using hands scoop a ball together and mold into a ball.

What’s your “go to” peanut butter now that Jif Whips is unavailabile? I have scanned a bunch of them, and it seems like everything scans for six points for 2 tablespoons. (Purple) Does it matter which one of those I choose?

I LOVE these bites and have even sent them to my kids in college.

Thx for all you do!

I use a tablespoon as a tool for forming the balls.
