They’re also nut-free, gluten-free, vegan, and have no added sugar.

No-Bake Oatmeal Raisin Energy (Cookie) Balls

Cookie ball mixINGREDIENTS

1 cup oats (old fashioned oats, although I made it with quick oats and they were fine)
1/2 cup packed dates, pitted and chopped (about 5-6 large)
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1-3 tablespoons water, as needed

INSTRUCTIONS

Add all ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are combined. Add water as needed to get the mixture to stick together.

Wet hands and roll mixture into golf ball-sized energy balls. (Recipe makes about 9-10.)

Store extra energy cookie balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Did you know… Dates are a good source of various vitamins and minerals, energy, sugar, and fiber. Dates also contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and zinc.

These energy balls have a chewy texture because of the dates and raisins. They are sweet like a cookie, yet healthy and filling. Enjoy!

  1. Excellent idea! I make a double batch and freeze mine in groups of two or three. Then I just Grab & Go so I have a snack for mid day too!

    1. Hi Joy! Thanks for adding that tid bit. I’m a fan of freezing left overs in individual containers for lunch. I grab it in the morning and it’s thawed by noon. I didn’t freeze any of the energy balls because I wasn’t sure how they’d freeze, but I will definitely make a double or triple batch next time so I have plenty for the freezer. Thanks again!

    1. Goji berries sound interesting! I haven’t tried them but know they have good nutritional value – particularly for the immune system. Thanks for the tip, I’ll give it a try!
