Put oats and currants in a food processor and process until mixed together and chopped up.

Add the pea protein powder and baking powder and mix until it starts sticking together.
Form balls, a little smaller than a golf ball size and flatten slightly.
Bake at 350ºF for 15 to 20 minutes or until bottom edges start turning slightly brown.
Cool for 30 minutes.
