3-Ingredient banana and oat protein balls! They are naturally vegan, gluten-free, and only 51 calories (3 grams of protein) each. They are fast and easy to make, too.



  • 1 large, very ripe banana
  • 3 tablespoons water (more , as needed)
  • 1 and 3/4 cups quick-cooking rolled oats (certified GF, as needed)
  • 1/3 cup vnailla vegan protein powder (I used Vega)
  • Optional (for rolling):
  • *matcha (green tea powder)
  • *unsweetened cocoa powder
  • *chia seeds
  • *cacao nibs
  • *unsweetened flaked coconut
  • *finely chopped goji berries or other dried fruit


  1. In a medium bowl, mash the banana into a puree using a fork. Add the water and oats. Mash and stir the mixture together until it becomes a cohesive paste. Stir in the protein powder.
  2. Shape into 1 inch balls (I use a small cookie scoop). If desired, roll in any of the suggested toppings.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.


Tip: If mixture is too wet, add some additional oats; if too dry, add a drizzle more water.
