Protein Balls

Let’s talk about balls. Specifically protein balls. Ummm £2 for a single ball… who the heck has the money for that?

I searched for a recipe and found that they seemed to contain a multitude of expensive ingredients (flax seeds and chia seeds, anyone?), so I gave up on that and set about creating my own and the results were pretty good, if I say so myself!

Thrifty protein balls

Ingredients (makes 8 balls)

1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder
2 scoops (60g) oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp peanut butter (or if you’re allergic to peanuts like I am, then almond butter but be warned, it’s twice the price!)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp raisins
Approx 1 tbsp cows/soya/almond milk

Method

  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together
  2. Add enough milk to bind the ingredients until the mixture holds together
  3. Roll into balls and pop in the fridge to set

I’ve been enjoying these after the gym for an energy boost. I hope you enjoy them too!
