Pb&J Oat Balls Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
¼ cup natural peanut butter the only ingredient on the ingredients list of the box should be peanuts
¼ cup soft dates, pitted soak them in warm water for 15 minutes if they're not super soft
1 cup dried cranberries
⅔ cup oats
½ tsp vanilla extract
1Add all ingredients to a blender.
2Blend until a dough forms. It's okay if there are chunks of dried berries in it, as long as it holds together as a dough and rolls nicely.
3Blend it for a minute more after a dough has formed, and it should get even smoother and easier to roll the more you blend – if you don't want a chunky dough. *Note that the balls won't have the peanut butter pink swirly look like they do in the photo. I had peanut butter stuck to the sides of the blender so parts of my dough was not pink. Normally, the entire dough should turn a shade of pink if you're using dried cranberries or cherries.
4Roll the dough into balls. Store at room temperature.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
