  • 2 ripe medium-size bananas
  • 1 cup rolled oats, cooked or soaked
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (almond, sunflower or pumpkin seed)
  • 1/2 cup seeds (hemp, pumpkin or sunflower)
  • 1/2 cup honey or your favorite liquid sweetener
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit such as cranberries or raisins (optional)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes, plus more for coating
  • 4 tablespoons protein powder (rice or hemp)


In a bowl, mash bananas and mix in remaining ingredients. The mixture should have a dough-like consistency. If too wet, add more coconut flakes and protein powder.

Form the dough into 1-inch balls and roll them in coconut flakes until they’re thoroughly coated. Place balls on a baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours. Store in either the refrigerator or freezer.

Special notes:

Cook an extra cup of oatmeal with your breakfast in the morning and store the leftovers in the fridge until you are ready to prepare the protein balls.
