Choc Banana protein balls. Nothing nasty.

I love randomly making a batch of protein balls. I’ve been experimenting with different recipes for a couple of years now and it’s ridiculously easy! Sometimes I box them up and give them as a small gift or take them to dinner parties. They’re delicious, healthy and a great way to satisfy that sweet spot after dinner with a cup of tea. I’ll post other flavour combinations and non-baked options also but give these a go and let me know what you think.

Choc Banana protein balls. High in fibre + essential fatty acids.
Ingredients:
1 ripe banana
1 tbls 100% natural peanut butter
1 tbls soy/almond milk
1 tbls organic pure honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup LSA
1/4 cup psyllium husks
1/4 cup fine desiccated coconut
1 tbls cocoa powder
pinch salt

Method:
1. Place all DRY ingredients in a food processor and mix well.
2. Add all WET ingredients to dry and process further to combine well.
3. Roll into balls and bake on 180 degrees (fan forced) for approx 15mins.

Tip: Careful not to leave them in too long, it’s nice to have the balls slightly moist.

    I’ve only ever made raw protein balls but I like the idea of using banana and baking them too. Can I substitute anything for the psyllium husks? It’s the only ingredient I don’t have in the house

    I made these last night and they’re super tasty. I like that they are lighter/less dense than a lot of other recipes. Good for satisfying a chocolate craving too!

    I made these banana bliss balls and tweaked the recipe a tad bit with ingredients I have on hand (tahini instead of PB, oat flour instead of LSA etc) and it turned out delicious. I love how the bliss balls isn’t as conveniently sweet like the traditional ones made out of dates and especially it’s lightly baked texture. Best of all, the recipe took less then 30 minutes from start to finish and was all done in my food processor. Thank you for sharing!
