These pancake protein balls are so delicious. Full of flavor, not too sweet and just the right size ball to put in your mouth.
I never really had a sweet tooth. Well, unless you count my love affair with gummies. That’s a whole other story. 😂
These balls were ready from beginning to end in literally ten minutes. This would be a fun project with kids too!
The inspiration for these tiny treats was the new Safe + Fair full stack granola. Swoon. Every time I try a new flavor I declare it the best one yet! I’ve been working with that company for almost two years. If you are not familiar with them, they make safe snacks and treats that are allergy free (the website has a drop down menu, so if you are allergic to tree or peanuts, you can filter products they offer that will work with you). I’ve made lots of recipes from their products over the years – you can check that out here.
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup white rice flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons PBFit (I used sugar free but regular is fine)
- 5 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup sugar free pancake syrup
- 56 grams Lily's sugar free chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup Safe + Fair Full Stack granola
- Heat oven to 350. Bake the oat flour for 5 minutes, or until it reaches 170 degrees. Cool and store any remainder oat flour in an air tight container. I usually bake 2 cups at a time.
- Mix the oats, flour, cinnamon, brown sugar, granola and salt together.
- In a separate bowl, mix the PBFit and water - adding enough so it's the consistency of pancake batter - you should be able to pour it.
- Add the PB Fit and syrup to the oats, and mix until everything is coated.
- Using a tablespoon, scoop out 15 balls.
- Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 20 second increments, just until melted.
- Crush the granola.
- To make: dip each ball into the chocolate, then into the granola. Repeat until all the balls are coated. You should have enough chocolate to drizzle over the top of each one. Store in an airtight container.

How do you bake flour for no bake recipes?
Eating raw flour is not healthy. In order to make the oat flour safe to eat, you need to bake it on a baking sheet at 350 until it reaches a temperature of 170. For my oven it took about 5 minutes. Once cooked and cooled, just store in an airtight container.
Powdered peanut butter is great to have on hand, especially for this recipe. I like a pourable consistency to the peanut butter, I find that it holds the balls shape without having to add dates or raisins to hold them together.
