Homemade peanut protein sweets
These sweet protein balls taste a damn sight nicer than most protein shakes and are just as effective for packing on muscle.
180g peanut butter
90g agave honey
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
45g porridge oats
Makes 10-12 balls
How to make them
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and form into walnut-sized balls. Place the balls in the fridge for a couple of hours until they harden.
Why should I have them?
The porridge oats have a low glycaemic index, which means they release their energy slowly and keep your blood sugar levels steady so you won’t crave unhealthy snacks. The whey protein will fuel muscle growth, while the peanut butter is rich in monounsaturated fat, which will boost the muscle-building hormone, testosterone.
