No Bake Protein Energy Balls



  1. Peel & mash the banana before adding the peanut butter (I found that if you heat these two in a pan first it makes adding the other ingredients a lot easier!).
  2. Add the oats and protein powder and mix well, then stir in your dried fruit.
  3. Use your hands to shape the mixture into a big dough ball (check out the video for what I mean!) before breaking off pieces the size of a small golf ball and rolling it into a ball shape.
  4. Place the protein balls on a plate lined with baking paper and repeat until all of the mixture has gone (I challenge you not to have a nibble!!).. I made 14.
  5. Place in the fridge for an hour before enjoying or store in an air tight container in the fridge 


You can always add more banana, nut butter or even milk if the mixture seems dry after mixing (or add more protein powder/oats if the mixture seems too sticky or wet!).

Makes 14 Balls.
