Oatmeal Cranberry PB2 Balls

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
(printable recipe)


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!
