Today is Oatmeal Cookie Day AND Raisin Day! Check out this easy, no bake treat - Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites!
I’ve been a big fan of California raisins every since I was little. With the exception of when the little dried fruit made it into my Halloween bag, I was always happy to see them, and they made a great portable, convenient, and naturally sweet afternoon snack. Nowadays, I still enjoy raisins in the afternoon by the handful, or, better yet, in energy balls or bites. I’ve made a couple variations on these snacks in the past (see my Cinnamon Raisin Almond Balls from back in the day, an old fave), but I especially love this new version. They have a great mix of complex carbs and fiber from the raisins and oats, which, when paired with the satiety-promoting healthy fat and protein from the nuts and ground flaxseed, make for a perfect energy boosting afternoon snack.
