Oatmeal raisin cookie fans can rejoice with this super simple, no-bake protein ball recipe. A perfectly poppable treat for when the cookie cravings hit!
A gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar free, and vegan treat that tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie. These oatmeal raisin protein balls are the perfect snack for any time of day. I like adding these to my yogurt or smoothie bowl, having them as a mid-morning snack, or a late night dessert before bed! These protein balls are versatile and easily packable for when you’re on the go.
What Ingredients are Needed for Oatmeal Raisin Protein Balls?
Oats: Old fashioned rolled oats only, not steel cut. Make sure they’re certified gluten-free oats if following a gluten-free diet.
Cashew Butter: This nut butter is used as our binder to hold everything together. Cashew butter offers that same binding quality as peanut or almond butter without all the overpowering flavor!
Honey: For a natural sweetener! Can sub for agave or maple syrup.
Vanilla Protein Powder: For this recipe I use a plant-based protein powder from Pure Food Company. This specific protein powder uses a combination of pea protein, hemp protein, and brown rice protein. Since protein powders are expensive, feel free to use whichever vanilla protein powder you already have on hand!
Raisins: Thompson seedless raisins. Can swap for golden raisins if that’s your preference.
Cinnamon and Nutmeg: To enhance the flavors!
