Grab N’ Go Energy Balls

As a lover of all things sweet, I am always on the hunt for a healthy sweet alternative.  I came across this recipe when my mother-in-law made me an energy bar.  They tasted delicious (tasty enough for my husband to enjoy), and didn’t leave me feeling guilty and bloated. I stole the recipe, made a few tweaks, and rolled the ingredients into balls rather than bars.  By eating them in small balls, I cut the calories by almost 75%.  These energy balls are perfect for a post-workout snack, or a mid-afternoon pick me up.
