  • 75g runny peanut butter
  • 60ml agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 100g plain flour of GF plain flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of sofa
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 30g berry jam

What you need to do:

  2. Mash the bananas and whisk together with the peanut butter, syrup, lemon juice and vanilla essence.
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a second bowl. Pour the wet mix over and stir to a thick batter. Fold in the Peanut Butter Protein Balls.
