These no-bake energy balls are the perfect recipe for kids of any age who are getting started with cooking. Because they’re no-bake, no need to worry about a hot stove. Add to that, all the ingredients can be sampled safely while you’re preparing them (as in, no worries about raw flour and eggs), and as an added bonus, the recipe is so flexible that exact measurement doesn’t really matter.
