Morning! I hate to say it, but after a week of non-stop baking, shooting, working, and very little sleep, I’m feeling a little under the weather. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been eating tart for breakfast pretty much every day this week…Whoops.
So I’ve been craving something slightly more nutritious, but still tasty. And these healthy peanut butter banana protein balls are just what the doctor ordered.
And by doctor, I mean me.
These gluten free energy balls are packed with vegan dark chocolate chips, chopped blackberries and blueberries - to give your daily antioxidant kick to start your morning right.
Consider this your prescription to munch on some delicious banana and peanut butter energy bites.
How to make these peanut butter banana protein balls
For these blueberry protein balls simply begin by mashing the bananas until a puree like consistency. Then add the oats and smooth or crunchy peanut butter and mix until combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips, blueberries and chopped blackberries.
Roll the banana oatmeal energy balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Top with a couple of extra vegan chocolate chips and bake for 10-12 mins until slightly firm.

Hi...sound delicious...I'm gonna try them . Do you happen to know how many carbs are in them or are they keto friendly ?
These protein balls are composed 50% from carbs with approx 10g per ball. So I wouldn't necessarily label these as keto, as you'll probably snack on 3 which exceeds the recommended percentage of carbs per meal for a keto diet. Hope that helps.
