Cinnamon Vanilla Protein Balls

I am about to share with you little globes of love! I say this because that’s what I feel when I nibble into one.

Not only do they taste divine, but they also are packed full of protein, AND are no-bake (aka: no oven required)!

These protein balls are:

  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan-friendly
  • Refined sugar-free

These are the first protein balls I ever made! I stuck to simple flavors, knowing you can’t go wrong with cinnamon and vanilla..but I can’t wait to experiment a little and create new flavor combinations!

Just like my Banana Bread Bites, these delicious bites are great for breakfast, a snack on the go, or post-workout!

I grab one or two when I’m craving something sweet, they go especially well with coffee. I know you will LOVE these as much as I do! 

Side notes:

  • Be sure to use a CREAMY nut butter that stirs easily. This is crucial for achieving the right consistency!
  • Any protein powder will work great in this recipe! For the protein powder that I love and use in my recipes and post-workout, and for 30% off using this link,  head over here!  

Disclaimer: I am now a brand ambassador for Orgain! I am very excited to work with this company, as I have been a lover and user of their protein powders for years! I do get a small commission if you purchase any products through this link!
