No Bake Oatmeal Energy Balls

Wanna know a dirty little secret?

I got this recipe from the back of my Trader Joe’s flax meal bag (verbatim!).

They’re┬ájust so easy and so good, I saw no reason to tweak or adjust.

These little bites have a good bit of fiber, protein, and heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids so they are a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth while giving your body a healthy boost of energy as well.

I like them with a cup of afternoon coffee and my kids just love them packed inside their lunch boxes!
