No Bake Oreo Protein Balls

With only 32 calories per Oreo, fudgey, protein-packed ball, you are surely to fall in love with this recipe and want to keep making!

Oreo lovers, meet your new favorite dessert! These balls are a straight up TREAT. Still so surprised at how these turn out so real (and naughty) tasting – especially with them being low-fat, protein-packed, and made from good-for-you ingredients. But we do not ask questions, we just say yes and enjoy the noms 😆

Cookies and cream protein fluff with white cake mix, black cooca, and no bake Oreo balls.


  • Protein Powder – I used PEScience protein powder. It blends so well in all recipes and this one is no exception! Zero protein powder or chalky-like taste – just smooth texture and delicious flavor!

  • Coconut flour – along with the protein powder, this is what makes up the bulk of protein ball. Coconut flour has different absorbent properties than all other flours, so for that reason, I wouldn’t recommend subbing – but if you do, know that the liquid in this recipe will likely need to be adjusted too. Most grocery stores sell it, but I always order Bob’s Red Mill off Amazon for connivence sake.
  • Black Dutch Cocoa Powder – this is different than normal cocoa! If you are unfamiliar with black cocoa, it is cocoa powder that has been heavily dutch, making it very dark (pretty much black). It tastes different than normal cocoa powder and is the secret weapon in making these Oreo protein balls have that ‘cookies and cream’ flavor! You need this stuff in your life, trust me! I use HIIT Nutrition Jet Black Cocoa Powder that I order from their website. You can use the code LaurenFitFoodie to save 10%.
  • Canned pumpkin
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • Zero-calorie granulated sweetener
  • Unsweetened almond milk
I’ve also been adding cake mix on top of my protein fluff at night and it has been life changing!
(I add 11g, which is 1/4 of a serving)

These balls are indulgent. Rich. Fudgy. Chocolately. And Oreo AF.

They taste amazing on top of yogurt bowls, normal or protein ice cream, with fruit or just straight up! Perfect for a afternoon snack or to curve that post-lunch sweet tooth. Perfect for breakfast or dessert or literally any other time since they are so tiny and cute and each ball is only 32 calories.

They also make a great dish to bring to a party. Especially when you add the white chocolate drizzle on top. Recipe for the White Chocolate Oreo Protein Balls is here.

No Bake Oreo Protein Balls

No Bake Oreo Protein Balls


  • 3 scoops (100g) Pescience Frosted Chocolate Cupcake protein powder (or other chocolate or vanilla protein powder)
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp (70g) coconut flour
  • ¼ cup (24g) black dutch cocoa powder - I used HIIT Nutrition
  • 1 tbsp zero-calorie sweetener of choice (I used granulated sweetener)
  • ½ cup (122g) canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup (113g) unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup (120 mL) unsweetened almond milk


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, coconut flour, black cocoa, and sweetener. Mix the dry ingredients until combined.
  2. Add in the pumpkin, applesauce, and almond milk. Continue mixing until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
  3. Once combined, line a baking sheet or other pan with wax paper.
  4. Begin rolling out out the dough into balls (I made 28 balls with each ball being about 20g). Roll balls with hands until all sides are smooth.
  5. Place each ball on the wax paper, making sure none of the balls are touching. Then place in the fridge for at least an hour before eating.
  6. Once they've been in for an hour, you can also transfer to sealed container. Keep balls stored in the fridge.

    • So I made these and the flavor came out super yum and rich but the texture is unpleasantly strange (SUPER soft/moist) even after being in the fridge overnight. Any recommendations on what to try next time?

      • Hey Nikki! It sounds like the dough may have gotten too moist! I would add only a little almond milk at a time, just enough that you can get the balls to stick together.

  1. Oh my gosh these would be perfect for all my Oreo loving family! Although I may be tempted to keep the whole batch for myself! Can’t wait to try!

  2. OMG I loooovveeeee OREOS!! I need to try making this!! Maybe add a holiday twist by putting crunched up candy cane on there too!!

  3. ok just made these for a Christmas party and can confirm they’re AMAZING!!! Such a huge hit and everyone couldn’t believe how high in protein they are!! I’m making these every holiday now 🙂

  4. I love these! I made them and they seriously taste like the actual Oreo balls my mom used to make!!! Obsessed

    • Update but I just made these tonight and already ate 3 lol. They are delicious and way better than any other no bake recipe I’ve tried! Gonna be making more once I run out but that will probably be in 1 or 2 days tops! Thanks lauren!

  5. I love that this is a no bake recipe because I’m not the best baker and tend to burn my baked goods 😄 I’ve made something similar to this but will try this variation out because of the oreo taste!

  6. I MUST TRY THESE!!! obsessed with oreo balls and a healthier version is much needed 😍 i have tried multiple of your recipes and i’m obsessed, this is definitely next on the list’

  7. Okay so these are amazing. I make them every single week since I have classes all day and they are perfect energy boost without the extra calories and sugar!

  8. Update but I just made these tonight and already ate 3 lol. They are delicious and way better than any other no bake recipe I’ve tried! Gonna be making more once I run out but that will probably be in 1 or 2 days tops! Thanks lauren!

  9. These no bake Oreo protein balls are to die for! They are super easy to make and taste sinful! No one believes me when I tell them they’re made with pumpkin and apple sauce! Try them if you haven’t!!

  10. Is there a decent substitute for the almond milk that doesn’t mess up the macros? I’m deathly allergic to nuts – especially almonds. Would love to try this but am still new to macros. Thanks in advance! 🙂

    • Hey Lexi! Any type of milk will do. There is only a little milk in here so changing that up should not effect the macros too much 🙂

  11. I love all of your recipes but these are a new fav!! I just bought the ebook yesterday and can not wait to try more recipes out!

  12. He Lauren, Do you have any suggestions how to make this a peanut butter version for PB lovers?

  13. Hi Lauren! Do you know how many grams is in each ball? 🙂 Also, any idea how could I twist this recipe to a peanut butter version? 🙂
