  • ¼ Cup Cashews *
  • 2/3 Cup Hazelnut Meal *
  • 1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter *
  • 1/3 Cup Vanilla Protein Powder , plus more for coating
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup + 1 TBS Honey
  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add the cashews and pulse to finely chop. The cashews should resemble coarse flour.
  2. Line a small baking sheet or plate with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the finely chopped cashews with the almond meal, peanut butter, and protein powder. Add in the vanilla extract and honey and use your hands to mix well.
  4. Use your hands and scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Roll into a ball (should be about 1-1 ½’’) and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat rolling until all the mixture is used.
  5. Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer and freeze for 20 minutes.
  6. Lightly roll the protein bites in more vanilla protein powder. Eat or store in an air-tight container the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 3 months. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

These bites are highly customizable, so I encourage you to make these your own!

  1. If you aren’t a fan of cashews, you can substitute any nut you would like.  Hazelnuts, almonds, or peanuts would all be delicious.
  2. While the recipe calls for hazelnut meal, I have used almond meal before and it is just as delightful!
  3. You can substitute any nut butter for the peanut butter, just make sure it is creamy and the no-stir variety.  I used reduced fat peanut butter.
  4. If you are vegan, feel free to substitute maple syrup for the honey!
