  • 1 tbsp cacao powder

Instructions:

  1. Mash banana in a bowl and add all other ingredients apart from oats.
  2. Continue to mash the mixture with a fork. (It will become quite gooey)
  3. Add in the oats and mix well. If you feel that the mixture is too wet, add more but don’t make it too dry. When it sets in a fridge you’ll see why.
  4. I used two tablespoons to scoop them out into medium sized balls and place them on a plate. Using your hands would be too messy.
  5. Once you have them all on a plate, leave them to refrigerate in a fridge for 30 mins.
  6. You will find that they have set at this stage and you can roll them into round balls like I did if you want.

You can refrigerate them for up to 3 days (cover with cling film).
