Protein Balls — The 5 Best No-Bake Recipes

Protein-filled, No Bake, no fuss and no weird additives!

I bring to you the best 5 energy filled, protein ball recipes I have!

A client of mine inspired me to create these protein balls recipes as she was after something fun to create with the kids and also save £2 every time she brought a Deliciously Ella. She’s also obsessed with smothering peanut butter on an apple (if you haven’t tried this, what have you been doing all your life?) so I dedicated 1 of the protein balls to that flavour! The ingredients to these protein balls won't require blitzing but will require lots of squishing rolling, However if you do have a blender - whiz it up!

P.S it's OK to lick your fingers after.
