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!
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
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together
- Add enough milk to bind the ingredients until the mixture holds together
- 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!
