No Oven Needed! Roll Up Healthy Cookie Dough Balls

The following post was originally featured on Kath Eats Real Food and written by Kath Younger| who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

I promised you this recipe ¡ª it’s a good one! My son’s preschool and our gym are nut-free| so a lot of premade granola bars are off-limits. I try to make my own every now and then| so these balls resulted from me throwing a bunch of ingredients in the food processor| closing my eyes| and hoping they turned out. I took careful notes ¡ª just in case.

Well lucky me| these are the best balls I’ve ever made! The oat| oat flour| and graham cracker crumbs give them a divine cookie dough taste. They might as well be cookie dough! I wonder what they’d be like baked.

Nutritionally| there is no added sugar other that the dates and what’s in the graham crackers| so you can feel awesome about eating these on your breakfast or for dessert.
