Protein Peanut Butter Balls Part 2- PB and J Protein Balls

One of my husband's favorite snacks and one of my most popular blog posts,  is Protein Peanut Butter Balls.  I love making them....BUT in Korea honey is EXPENSIVE!!!!!!  Like very very very expensive and that is for the cheap not great kind.   So I have been playing around with good substitutes for honey.

Strawberry JamAnd I think I found my solution and a way to offer the Hubby a new flavor of protein balls
Now this doesn't work with Jelly.  And I have a strong preference to Jams with bits of fruit in them.

  1. It is WAY easier to mix then the Honey
  2. It changes the Protein Balls flavor from  Peanut Butter to PB and J
  3. The chunks of fruit add texture to the balls!!
  4. Jam adds vitamins and fiber.  
Another things I changed was the Oat Bran-


  • 2 Tbsps of Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsps of Protein Powder-a little extra may be used to roll the balls
  • 2 Tbsps of Oats/Oat  Bran-I like to use whole oats to give these balls more texture..BUT it doesn't matter
  • 2 Tbsps of Jam- I prefer Strawberry

  1. Mix all the ingredient together in a bowl
  2. Coat hands with protein powder- This will help decrease stickiness
  3. Divide dough into 8 sections
  4. Take the first section and roll it into a ball
  5. OPTIONAL- coat with protein powder or chia seeds
  6. Repeat untill you have 8 balls
  7. When finished, refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve.
I have tried this recipe with Grape, blueberry and Strawberry Jam.  The Hubby has loved them all!!!
