These Oatmeal & Raisin Energy Balls are going to reel you right in; in fact, with this combination of oats, coconut, and raisins they just might be my new favorite snack! This is actually surprising considering I am such a huge chocolate fan. But because I am also an avid cookie dough lover…I thoroughly enjoyed munching on this coconut, oat, and raisin mixture as I rolled these dough balls up.

 

These energy balls have two full scoops of vanilla protein powder. So right there you are adding in 21 grams of protein in the recipe. I used a vegan product called, Orgain Organic Protein. I’ve used this brand for so many years that I have lost count, it is clearly my favorite. Orgain is vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free.

Oatmeal & Raisin Energy Balls                          22   Balls

1  1/2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats, like Bob’s Red Mill.
1 cup cashew butter ~ check labels some brands have other nuts added
1/4 cup honey or agave
2 scoops (51-60 grams) vanilla protein powder, I use Orgain Protein and Superfood Vanilla Bean.
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup raisins
Optional 2 tbsps allergy-friendly mini chocolate chips ~ this sounds good to me!

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well using your hands if needed.

Add in the coconut and raisins. Mix well using your hands.

Energy balls are much easier to mix using your hands because it incorporates the ingredients really well. Besides your hands are going to be in the bowl anyway making balls, which is our next step. Form 22 balls unless you eat part of the dough…then there might be a few less  : )

Store the oatmeal and raisin energy balls in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container. If you freeze them they will need to sit for a minute or two because they freeze very hard.

Enjoy!!
