One week from now, I'm launching my new workshop "My Vegan Family" together with Iris Shavit.
I'm very excited, working around the clock to perfect the recipes.
One of the main challenges we had when creating this workshop, was how to make legumes more likable and fun for the families.
These delicious bliss balls are part of the solution!
Sweet and surprising peanut butter balls, inspired by Plant-Based Juniors.
This is a fantastic recipe for the whole family. Our baby Tom (1.2 old) fell in love with it with the first bite.
It's great for freezing and snacking outside.

Pit the dates and soak in a bowl with hot water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Drain the cooked beans.
In a food processor - pulse the oats for a minute to form flour. Add the beans, pitted dates, and peanut butter and blend to form the dough. If very sticky, refrigerate for 15 minutes before rolling.
Chop the frozen berries or pulse to create small crumbs.
Roll the balls - spoon 1 tbsp of dough and flatten to a disk between your hand. Fill with a very small amount of peanut butter and frozen berries and carefully close into a ball. Repeat with the remaining dough.
If you wish, cover with hemp seeds.
Transfer to an airtight container and store refrigerated for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
If cooking dry beans - I recommend soaking it in plenty of water for a minimum of 8 hours and only then cooking it. The cooking time will vary (depending on the soak and quality of beans) but should be around 1.5 hours until soft. You can also use a pressure cooker.
You can use cooked frozen beans or canned beans as well.
