Funky Monkey (Chocolate Peanut Butter & Banana) Protein Balls
Makes 20 Balls
By Sarah Gilks
1 cup old fashioned oat (large flake)
1 cup old fashioned oats, ground
1 cup unsweetened coconut
3 scoops undenatured vanilla protein powder (we love Isagenix Isapro)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tbsp PB2 (ground peanuts)
1 ripe banana, mashed
½ cup natural peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
**optional ~ 2-3 squares of dark chocolate, melted (we love green tea infused Isagenix Isadelights ~ note that this will change the nutrient value a little bit)
Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the mashed banana, peanut butter and almond milk. Add to dry mixture and stir until combined. It may take a while for it to be completely mixed…do not add more liquid as they may end up too wet.
Form into balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Place in freezer for about 20 mins. If dipping in chocolate, now is the time! Store in airtight container in freezer or fridge!
