  • One serving of vegan vanilla protein powder (plant-based)
  • One large banana, ripe

The directions to make these vegan protein balls is also very easy to understand and will only take a couple of minutes to complete. Here are the full instructions below.

  • Ready your food processor and pour both the protein powder and rolled oats into the processor. Keep the processor on for about a minute or until the oats are only slightly chopped but still not completely smoothed down.
  • Next, add in the banana and turn on the food processor until you start creating a dough out of the mixture. Take out the dough from the food processor.
  • Start making twelve dough balls on a flat surface, however large or small you want them to be. You can also put them in a reusable container to keep them fresh for longer.
  • Store the leftovers in an airtight container and let them sit in the fridge to remain fresh.
