Protein balls

Great pre / post workout snack - I find these great in the run up to my period when I'm low on energy and can crave chocolate / sweet things. This uses whey protein but I'm sure you could use a vegan protein powder too or leave it out all together and just add some cacao to make it chocolatey if you wanted it. You'd need less milk if not using protein powder too. Sorry the picture only has two balls in it. I'd eaten the rest by the time I got around to taking a photo!!!!


Ingredients for 12-14 balls

(uses American cups as measurements):

  • 2 cups oats

  • 1 cup chocolate whey protein

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2 tbsp. honey

  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter

  • 3 tbsp. dried fruit

  • 1 tbsp. mixed seeds

Method:

  • Mix oats, protein powder, dried fruit and seeds in a large bowl

  • Melt honey and peanut butter in pan over a low heat.

  • Mix into oat mixture

  • Add milk and mix all together with your hands!

  • Roll into balls and leave to set in fridge for 2-3 hours.
