Chewy bite-sized balls made with SunButter, oats, dried fruit, and cinnamon. The perfect prep-ahead snack that’s vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free too!


  • 5 cups (500g) rolled oats
  • 2 cups (300g) dried cranberries (or any dried fruit, or even half dried fruit and half chocolate chips!)  
  • 2 cups (500g) Creamy SunButter 
  • 1 cup (300g) maple syrup or honey 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the sweetener and SunButter stirring frequently until melted and smooth.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, dried fruit, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Pour the SunButter mixture over the dry ingredients and mix (hands work best).
  4. Roll into balls (about 1 tablespoon of dough per ball).
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes until firm.
  6. Enjoy!
  7. Keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week, or freeze for longer storage.
