No Bake Power Protein Balls


It’s a new year, and that means everyone is buckling down and trying to eat healthier and take better care of their bodies. My husband and I are no exception. We go to the gym regularly and love meal prep Sunday. We’ve been struggling to snack on healthy foods though. Then, I came across a recipe for No Bake Protein Balls and everything changed. Jordan says they’re his favorite thing I cook. I don’t know if thats a good or bad thing? 😉

No Bake Power Protein Balls

These No Bake Power Protein Balls are packed with nutrition, especially protein. They are only 80 calories each and over 7 grams of protein. I don’t recommend using just any protein powders. Instead of risking the hidden ingredients in some powders, I use dōTERRA TrimShake. dōTERRA has completely gone above and beyond my strict standards for pure, plant-based products. If you remember all of the health struggles I’ve had, you know that I won’t use just any products.

Quick and Easy

First, I love that this recipe is so fast! It takes very little effort. Second, you can use any type of nut butter. I prefer Jif Reduced Fat Peanut butter. The calories are lower than most other types. It’s also the perfect consistency for forming the balls.








  • 1 cup dry old-fashion oats
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter (or a nut butter of your choice)
  • 1/2 ground flax seeds (see below on how to easily use a blender)
  • 1/3 cup local honey
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops dōTERRA Chocolate TrimShake (get yours 25% off)
  • 1/2 mini chocolate chips (optional)



  1. Place whole flax seeds in blender (I prefer NutriBullet) and blend until a powder is formed
  2. Stir all ingredients in a medium bowl until well mixed
  3. Cover and chill for 30 minutes
  4. Once chilled, (they it have firmed up a little) roll mix into small balls. *Note: it is easier to press into a ball shape than to roll
  5. Store in refrigerator for up to one week
  6. Enjoy a few treats when tempted to grab that junk food, or when in need of a pre/post workout protein boost

Our Engagement Story

‘Tis the season for engagements, falalalalala 🎼

My engagement story went something like this, “You look terrible. Will you marry me?” Ok, maybe something happened in between there. Christmas time is the perfect time for engagements, but I’m biased because I got engaged exactly one year and three days ago today. I’m here to remind you that engagements are not about the perfect proposal…Just look at the “fairytale” bachelor proposals that end up in tabloid flames. It’s about who you’re saying yes to spending the rest of your life with. Continue reading “Our Engagement Story”
