Blueberry Balls (WFPB) Recipe

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cooking Time 40 minutes
Soaking Time 1 hour
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings 3 Portions of 185 calories each (1 portion = 2 balls)

Ingredients
 
 

  • 90 g Blueberries, fresh
  • 35 g Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 20 g Peanut Butter
  • 5 g Vanilla Extract
  • 5 g Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
  • Lemon Zest, of 1 lemon
  • 80 g Rolled Oats
  • ¾ tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in hot water for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the blueberries on the baking tray.
  • Bake the blueberries for 50 minutes in a conventional oven or 40 minutes in a convection oven until they look shriveled and have released some of their juices. Make sure to check frequently not to burn them, as your oven might cook quicker.
  • When the blueberries are ready, let them cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Some of the blueberries would have burst so you might need to scrape everything off the baking sheet.
  • Strain the dates and discard the soaking water and add all the ingredients to a food processor.
  • Process everything until well combined. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor if needed. The texture of the mixture will be grainy, however, when grabbing a handful of the mixture and pressing it in your fist, it should hold its shape and not fall apart. If the mixture is too dry and is not sticking together when pressed, add a couple of tablespoons of water.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal parts, and form each part into a ball. (If you have adjusted the number of portions, please adjust the number of balls accordingly).
  • These are best served chilled, so refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

Notes

The amounts in the recipe are very small as they are to make only 3 portions. I suggest doubling or even tripling the amounts and freezing the extra portions to save time.
Storage: Can be stored in the fridge for 3 to 4 days in an airtight container.
Freezable: Can be frozen.
