When you want a nutritious snack filled with protein, fiber, healthy sugar and spice give these No-Bake balls a try.
First flavor option
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (preferably Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark raisins
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. clove

Makes approximately 12 balls if using tablespoon. Refrigerate, covered.
