Last night I made PB2 Balls but I was out of chocolate chips so I substituted dried cranberries. I'm not a huge chocolate fan so this was a nice change. I liked the tartness of the cranberries against the sweetness of the PB2. I was also out of quick-cooking oats so I used old-fashioned oats and they worked out great. All I had to do was add a little extra water. So here if you like my PB2 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, try the new Oatmeal Cranberry PB2 Balls!
Oatmeal Cranberry PB2 Balls
5 tbsp old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp PB2
2 tbsp dried cranberries
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp water
Place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to mix well. Roll dough into three balls (I use my Pampered Chef small scoop)
and place in a covered container. Freeze for at least 30 minutes if you are going to eat them soon or refrigerate if you are not going to eat them right away.
Makes 3 balls.
*If you don't have PB2 you can substitute regular peanut butter, probably 2 tbsp. but you may need to reduce the amount of water slightly. Please leave a comment below if you make this substitution!
