These little snacks are easy to make and genuinely taste like Oatmeal raisin cookies! Perfect for a morning or afternoon snack with a cup of tea, or for a pre/post workout bite.
I made these delicious little things for our bike rides to Brighton and Paris. Filled with oats, peanut butter and dried fruit, the protein, slow release carbs and natural sugars will help get an immediate energy hit whilst also filling you up for a while!
Oatmeal Raisin Energy Balls

125g raisins or sultanas
1 In a food processor pulse the oats for 20 seconds before adding the dates, peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla and honey. Pulse until it starts to come together, about a minute.
2. Add the raisins and pulse for another 15 seconds. Divide the mixture into 20 small balls (about the size of a walnut). You may need to really squeeze to get them together. Chill or freeze the balls until solid and enjoy!
