Try this:

library(RGoogleAnalytics)
oauth_token <- Auth(
  client.id = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.apps.googleusercontent.com", 
  client.secret = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
)
oauth_token
# <Token>
#   <oauth_endpoint>
#   authorize: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth
# access:    https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token
# validate:  https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/tokeninfo
# revoke:    https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/revoke
# <oauth_app> google
# key:    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.apps.googleusercontent.com
