Energy Bites

So my sister gave me this recipe a few years ago and I finally got around to trying it. These energy bites are super yummy. They reminded me of oatmeal cookie dough. And you know that I can't make cookies without eating a bunch of the dough. But these energy bites are even better than cookie dough, because there's no raw eggs and they're packed full of healthy stuff.

I did not include the ground flax or the sunflower seeds because I didn't have them on hand. And I decided to go with the more healthy raisins vs the mini chocolate chips. Feel free to experiment and adjust to fit the ingredients you have on hand.

 These were perfect for a quick snack in the afternoon. You know that time of day when it's too close to dinner to eat without spoiling your appetite, but you're starving. Just grab one or two of these to keep the hunger pains at bay.
