*Mostly* healthy and an easy, no bake recipe – yes please!  Don’t be fooled by the chocolate coating, inside they are packed with goodness and wholesome, filling whole grains & protein.  I don’t know about you, but right around 3:00ish I get that snacky feeling.  These power balls are sweet enough to satisfy even the sweetest of sweet tooth, and will help you power through the afternoon.  They also have enough wholesome goodness that you don’t have to feel *too* bad about indulging!  I used milk chocolate chips for coating, but you could substitute for dark chocolate if you want to stay on the healthier side.
