Ingredient Notes

Rolled Oats: Quick oats can be used in a pinch, but they may result in a slightly different texture. Do not use steel cut oats.

Biscoff Cookie Butter: Biscoff is the star of these protein balls so I would not recommend substituting this ingredient; however, if you’re in a pinch or want to experiment with different flavors, almond butter or peanut butter could offer a unique twist.

Trader Joe’s also has a Speculoos cookie butter that is similar to Biscoff.

Protein Powder: My favorites are Clean Simple Eats or Kos but feel free to use your your favorite protein powder or whatever you have on hand.

Almond Milk: I like using Vanilla Unsweetened. You can also use any other non-dairy milk like soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. Dairy milk can also be used.

How to make Biscoff Protein Balls: Step by Step

Step 1: Place the rolled oats in a food processor or blender and pulse until they’re finely ground.

Step 4: Gradually add in the almond milk, one tablespoon at a time. Continue to mix. Your mixture should be firm enough to hold together but not too sticky. If it’s too dry, add a little more almond milk; if it’s too wet, add a touch more protein powder or blitzed .Once your mixture is the right consistency, fold in the mini chocolate chips.

Before adding all the almond milk, test the mixture by pressing a small amount between your fingers. It should hold together but not feel overly wet.

How To Store

Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator; separating layers with parchment paper to prevent them from sticking together. They can be stored in the fridge for up to one week.

Freezing: These protein balls freeze great! To prevent the protein balls from sticking together when frozen place the freshly made balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them for about an hour or until they are solid. ,

You can then transfer them to an airtight container or a zip-top freezer bag.

Recipe Variations

Nutty Delight: Add crushed walnuts, pecans, or almonds for a crunchy texture and added nutrients.

Double Chocolate: Use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla and mix in cocoa powder or use dark chocolate chips for a deeper chocolate flavor.

Vegan Version: Use vegan protein powder, replace honey with maple syrup or agave nectar, and ensure your chocolate chips are vegan-friendly.

Chia Seed Boost: Mix in chia seeds. They’ll add a slight crunch and a boost of fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Chocolate-Dipped: Enhance the decadence by dipping half of each protein ball in melted dark, milk, or white chocolate, and refrigerating until set. To make them extra fancy, sprinkle the chocolate layer with crushed Biscoff cookies, nuts, or a pinch of sea salt before it hardens.
