White Chocolate Pistachio No Bake Protein Bites

It’s been a while since I’ve made a no bake protein bites recipe, and recency bias is always lurking. But I feel confident in saying these white chocolate pistachio protein bites are my favorite no bake bites I’ve ever made.

The saltiness of the pistachios perfectly balances the sweetness of the white chocolate and vanilla protein powder. And the texture, thanks to roasted pistachios, is amazing. There’s a slight crunch in every bite.

You'll love these 4-ingredient no bake protein bites with roasted pistachios and white chocolate chips. Each protein bite has 8 grams of protein and only 110 calories.

And with just four ingredients, it’s safe to say these no bake protein bites are one of the easiest recipes in the category.

Ingredients for No Bake Protein Bites

It’s a short list!

  1. roasted, salted, and shelled pistachios
  2. white chocolate chips
  3. protein powder
  4. your choice of milk

Even if you decide to make the optional coating, you’ll only need more of the first two ingredients on the list. With such a short ingredient list, I don’t foresee many questions beyond the protein powder. So I’ll briefly touch on it below and leave a few protein powder notes in the recipe card’s notes section.

The Best Protein Powder for Recipes

For these no bake protein bites, I used PEScience Select Whey and Casein protein powder. This is one of my go-to protein powders for recipes and cooking, with the other being Dymatize’s 100% Whey. I’m not affiliated with either company, I just love the products.

You can use any protein powder you’d like, just pay attention to the scoop size and gram measurements I’ve provided in the recipe. If your protein powder has tiny scoops and you blindly add them, you’ll end up with white chocolate pistachio soup. Likewise, you may need to add a bit more milk to get the consistency right before forming.

Don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it in the recipe card.

P.S. If you’re looking for a plant based protein powder, I’ve been experimenting with the PEScience vegan protein powder and even used it in a cherry chocolate vegan mug brownie. It gets a big thumbs up from me. 

How to Make No Bake Protein Bites

Here’s the abbreviated version of the recipe:

  • run pistachios through a food processor or blender
  • add the protein powder
  • pour melted white chocolate chips over the pistachios and protein powder
  • stir until you can form protein bites

Easy enough, right?
