Have a sweet tooth but don’t want to ruin your macros for the day? Insert these Chocolate Chip Coconut Protein Bites! They’re super simple to make, have pretty great macros, and taste like cookie dough! Each bite is packed with 7 grams of protein!
I’ll be totally honest, I don’t usually make these. Why? Because I’m a HUGE G2G Protein Bar fan so I just buy those. Worth every penny in my opinion and their macros are really hard to beat. You can actually save 20% off your order every single time with discount code: stayfitmom. I understand that not everyone can fit them into their budget so that’s why I thought it would be fun to do a copycat version. I think I did pretty well. You’ll have to let me know what you think of them!

I did a copycat version of one of my favorite flavors, Peanut Butter Coconut Chocolate. If you don’t love coconut, leave it out and your macros won’t hardly change. Don’t love peanut butter? Use almond butter, no big deal. These are so easy to manipulate to suit your needs and preferences!
Make sure you choose a good tasting protein powder to make these. If you don’t love the taste of your protein, you won’t love the taste of these bites. I highly recommend Clean Simple Eats vanilla or snickerdoodle whey protein for this recipe. They have a ton of different protein flavors to choose from, the ingredients list is clean, and it tastes great. Save 10% with our discount code: stayfitmom.
- 4 cups old fashion oats
- 3 scoops vanilla whey (I like to use Clean Simple Eats Vanilla or Snickerdoodle)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (128g)
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 4 tablespoons honey (84g)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
- 6 tablespoons sweetened coconut flakes (45g)
- 4 tablespoons mini milk chocolate chips (60g)
- Blend 2.5 cups of the oats in a blender and then put in a medium size mixing bowl.
- Add in all remaining ingredients and stir well.
- The dough should resemble cookie dough. If it’s too sticky add additional oats or oat flour. (This won’t change your macros much because it will make additional bites)
- Roll into 40g balls and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Once firm you can layer them in an airtight container and they won’t stick together.Keep in your fridge up to 6 days.

Hi! I am baffled by this recipe. I have attempted twice. The second time I added more peanut butter and almond milk because it was so dry and wouldn’t come together. It is so many oats. Should it really be 4 1/2 cups total?
I meant 4 cups
That’s what I wrote down but now I’m second guessing myself! Darn it. I’ll have to make them again. Did you blend some like the recipe says?
Can you use Oat Flour for all the oats? Instead of blending the oats?
Mine came together nicely with 4 1/2 cups of oatmeal. Maybe I would try 4 1/4 next time, that would be perfect!
We love these!! Can you make in bulk and then freeze them?
Yes, of course. These are perfect for making in big batches ahead of time.
