Oatmeal Power Balls

Oatmeal Power Balls Recipe - SavvyMom

When I was young, somewhere around age three, maybe four, my mom decided our family was going to embrace vegetarianism. It was fairly forward thinking for the time, but also short-lived, because today both my parents are committed carnivores. One thing I also remember is these yummy Oatmeal Power Balls she came up with to ensure we had enough protein and fats.

These are perfect snacks to pop into your kids pre-activity and for snacks at home (or replace the peanut butter with a seed butter to make these school safe).
