how to make these healthy and with protein?

Those actually don't look too bad.  If I were making them I would use sugar free chocolate chips, sugar free honey and I would add a scoop or two of protein powder, either vanilla or unflavored.  I add protein powder to everything I can get away with.  That makes most everything healthy ;)

I don't eat sugar in case you didn't notice but I really don't miss it.  Most anything I could want I can find sugar free.  I also avoid gluten.

They look similar to the protein bars I make at home. Replace the honey with Splenda or something else and use only semisweet chocolate chips. Add some vanilla protein power and more PB. It won't be quite the same, but it'll probably turn out good in its own right. The oats and flaxseeds mixed with PB will be the binding agent to keep the balls from falling apart. You can add a tbsp of water if you need it and with the added protein powder, you very well might. Honey was the binding agent in the original recipe.
