Healthy Vegan Protein Bites
These delicious healthy vegan protein bites are a great snack or dessert! They are easy to make, require no baking, and include a key step to making them the best protein bite you will ever have!
These healthy vegan protein bites are one of my favorite treats! I started making them years ago and quickly learned how addicting they can be. Once upon a time, I decided to start a vegan bakery from home and these were one of my top-selling items. The bakery business didn’t quite go as planned, but now I get to share all of my favorite recipes for free and I’m super excited about that!

When we go to the movies I am always looking for a healthy treat to take with us. I make a batch of these healthy vegan protein bites and sneak them in my purse! They are a great healthier substitute for candy, but beware you may eat the entire batch like I did! These are also a great snack to pack in kid’s lunches. When I make these my kids seriously fight over them. They are that addicting!
These healthy vegan protein bites are made from whole ingredients that can easily be found in your pantry. I know there are tons of recipes out there for protein bites, energy bites, energy balls, etc, but these are the best! They are more like a ball of cookie dough than an earthly ball of oats and seeds. This is because I have a secret in my recipe!
Well, it’s not a secret because I’m about to tell you, but it makes all the difference in taste and texture! I have found that if you take the oats and ground them down to oat flour it makes them more smooth and delicious. They are like a little healthy bite of cookie dough. I’m not kidding! You cannot skip this step.
Take your oats and put them in a food processor. I have a Ninja and it works great. Put a few cups of oats in the blender and grind them down until they are a flour consistency. Then measure out what you need and put the rest in an airtight container until you make another batch. Another little tip I have is to use Mini Chocolate Chips because they spread around easier and then you will get more chocolate in each bite without increasing calories too much. I love these!
You can store these Healthy Vegan Protein Bites for up to two weeks in the refrigerator. They are also great to freeze if you prefer to make a large batch and have them on hand. These are great for snacks, dessert, gifts for family, friends, or teachers, or getting you through that afternoon slump. If you are trying to lose weight I would recommend having no more than 2 a day, because although they are healthy they are easy to overeat and will not help with weight loss if you eat too many. These healthy vegan protein bites can help with weight loss if you prefer something sweet after a meal and have just one or two to satisfy that craving instead of eating candy or cake.
