No-bake Powerball Bites (The Healthy Cookie Dough)

Ready in under 5 minutes, packed with protein and fiber these tasty bites will make you happy...

1 cup old fashioned oven toasted oats straight out of the box
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon shredded unsweetened organic coconut
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons raisins


Just mix all the ingredients thoroughly and form into tiny bites (will make about 12).  The consistency is dense so it is best to put a little dollop in the palm of your hand and make a fist around it.  They will form more easily that way.  I like to store them in the fridge.

Perfect before running out the door on your way to class or work.  Or, enjoy one or two of these bites as a snack when you need a pick-me-up energy boost :-)

Let me know how you like them!

PS- perfect excuse to squeeze some more fiber into the day

PPS- reduce the peanut butter portion by 1-tbsp and substitute 1-tbsp Nutella for a yummy twist
