  • 150g porridge oats
  • 50g protein powder of your choice (we used vanilla whey)
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 150g nut butter of your choice (we used peanut)
  • 4 tbsp plant milk
  • 25g chocolate chips or raisins (optional)


For other flavour combinations, you can use raisins instead of chocolate chips, try almond butter and increase the quantity of cinnamon.
If you like a smoother texture, you can partially whizz the porridge oats, but you may need to add another tbsp of plant milk. 


  1. Combine the oats, protein powder, flaxseed and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, nut butter, milk and chocolate chips.

  2. Stir well to combine the mixture, then, using damp hands, roll it into 15 balls (they should be about 30g each). Arrange on a plate and chill for 30 mins until firm, then serve.
