Why energy balls instead of a protein Bar?

Our oatmeal raisin cookie energy balls remind us very much of girl scout cookies. Who doesn’t love girl scout cookies? We at Rebecca Bitzer & Associates absolutely love them! So much so that we decided to create them into fun and delicious energy balls from people on the go such as busy moms and dads, athletes, and children.

Our oatmeal raisin energy balls recipe makes a ton of energy balls, so ten minutes of food prep and you are set for a while. Just place the left over in a container in your fridge and they are ready to grab-n-go whenever you need them. Plus they taste like oatmeal raisin cookies so they are a great sweet treat for our dessert lovers out there. They are diabetes friendly, gluten-free, heart healthy, low sodium and vegetarian.  Adults and kids will love these energy balls that taste very similarly to oatmeal girl scout cookies.

All natural ingredients in our oatmeal raisins cookie energy balls!
