Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Protein Energy Balls are one of my new favorites for breakfast and snacks. Over the years I’ve tried a lot of protein bars, cookies, etc. I have a few favorites, but I still believe prepping my own is the best way to go. It allows me to have control over the ingredients and the macros. Store bought bars are usually loaded with a ton of added sugar. It can sometimes also be difficult to find alternatives that are free of dairy.
Note: Use plant-based protein vs whey if you would like a dairy-free alternative.

I’m a huge fan of the Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder. It works great for cooking. These balls are perfect for meal prep. I pack them in small Ziploc bags and grab a couple for a work each day. This is also a no-bake recipe which is a major win for me. This helps cut down on prep time and perfect for summer. I usually hate when I have to use my oven in the summer.
This is a very quick and easy recipe. It works well for me to prep these protein balls late on Sunday nights. It only takes a small amount of time. I then place them in the fridge overnight.
