Were yesterday’s gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies still not healthy enough for you? Then perhaps these raw oatmeal raisin balls will be more your style!

I know energy ball recipes are absurdly old hat at this point, but there’s a reason they appear on every blog on the Internet. Three reasons, to be precise: they’re easy, delicious, and good for you, too! Personally, I tire of putting dates and cashews in everything, so as with my raw almond fig balls, this recipe is free of both. They don’t taste like cookies, but they are seriously fantastic, if I may say so myself.
