These 5-ingredient cinnamon protein balls only take a few minutes to throw together and are full of healthful ingredients! These are an excellent snack or grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings.
When you’re trying to eat healthy, snack time can be quite the challenge! For me, I often feel like I’m either stuck eating cut up veggies and hummus, or a protein bar from my fridge. While both great options, it can get a little old after a while.
Which is why I adore energy balls! I mean they’re sweet, they’re portable, they’re easy to make and they can be customized to your heart’s content!
Who knew one snack could have so many names?! Protein balls, energy bites, just “balls”. . . I’m sure there are even more out there. No matter what you call them, one thing is for sure: they are one of the best snacks to have on hand for easy, healthy snacking!
Protein balls, no bake energy bites, fat bombs are one of our favorite healthy snack recipes to make for busy school mornings.
The number one thing I want in a snack is for it to be portable. Since so many of us are on the go constantly, we need snacks that are accessible while we’re out. Cinnamon Protein Balls are just that – you can throw them in your bag and eat them on the go!

Protein Balls are Too Dry or Crumbly?
If your protein balls seem a little dry or crumbly, just add a little water or almond milk to the protein ball mixture, 1 teaspoon at a time until the mixture is moist enough to form into balls. Just be careful not to add too much liquid.
How TO STORE PROTEIN BITES?
You can store these breakfast protein bites at room temperature but chilling them in the fridge prevents them from getting too soft or mushy.
Just place the energy balls in a single layer in an airtight container or in zip-lock bags.
