These are my favourite before/after workout treats. Soft, chocolaty and very fulfilling! I use Arbonne Protein powder as they are certified vegan; they use pea protein instead of whey (which is btw a cheap byproduct of the cheese making process). Good to know, right?
So go on, roll up your sleeves and make these delicious balls before you hit the gym next time.
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup almond milk
2 scoops vegan protein powder*
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/8 -1/4 cup agave syrup
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbs cocoa powder (+1/2 tbs for rolling)
*For this recipe I used Arbonne Chocolate Protein Powder (www.YourArbonne.co.uk)
1. Place the rolled oats into an electric blender. Whizz for a few seconds to turn your oats into oat flour.
2. Add all the remaining ingredients and combine.
3. Use a small ice-cream scoop, or tablespoon to get even portions, roll the dough into balls then roll them in cocoa powder.
