"Do You Even Lift Bro?" Protein Balls Recipe
A coworker of mine was telling me about the protein balls she makes for her fitness-buff boyfriend and based on what she told me, I made my own up. I find these highly addictive! This recipe makes 15 and I ate them all in 3 days, probably not what you're supposed to do. But now, if anyone asks me "Do you even lift?" I can be all like, "Not really but I eat a lot of protein balls", and I'm pretty sure that gives me fitness cred, doesn't it?
Makes 15 balls
1 overripe banana, mashed
2 tbsp chia seeds
6 tbsp rolled oats
4 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
2. Shape into balls and arrange on a baking paper lined tray. Put the tray into the freezer overnight. When protein balls have frozen solid, they can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the freezer for several weeks, if they last that long.
Happy eating! :)
