These protein balls are probably one of the easiest things I have ever made!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Here’s what you need to make them:
3 ripe bananas
3 cups of GF oats
1 cup of powdered (with liquid) or running peanut butter (try it with almond butter too)
I used Betty Lou’s gluten free, vegan, organic, non-GMO powdered peanut butter when I made these. I will say that this product is not celiac friendly. It says the product is gluten free but it is processed in a factory that also processed wheat, dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy products. If you have celiac’s or have very serious food sensitivities then I would not recommend using this product. I have been putting it in my smoothies as a protein powder and I love it! Powdered peanut butter is a new health trend and since I have been using this product I can see why! It is very low calorie and low fat but you still get the protein benefits from using this product.
First things first, I mashed the bananas in the bowl until they were smooth. I mixed the powdered peanut butter in a separate bowl with some water until I got a runny consistency. (The runnier the peanut butter is, the better the protein balls will stick together). Then, I mixed in the three cups of oats one cup at a time.
All that’s left is to do is to roll up the mixture into balls (make sure to wash your hands first for food safety purposes) and bake them for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
