These Oatmeal Raisin Energy Balls as so quick to make and perfect for lunch box or after-school treats for your kids. I shaped them into fun balls that my boys would be more apt to eat.

They both like California raisins, oatmeal, and peanut butter so I knew these would be a winner. I love California Raisins because they are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about sending with your kids as they head back to school or offered as an after-school snack. They’re also convenient and portable.

California Raisins are a great choice for wholesome, healthy, on-the-go snacking. They are a great value, too! According to the USDA, raisins are the most economical dried fruit. California Raisins are naturally sweet. With California Raisins, the nutrition label tells a great story: Zero fat, no cholesterol, and no added sugar. Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium and 6% of your daily iron. (per quarter-cup serving) These are all great reasons I try to get raisins into my growing 9 and 12-year-olds!

You can make Oatmeal Raisin Energy Balls in just a matter of minutes! Throw all the ingredients in a mixer and let it do the work. I shaped mine into balls because I thought it was more fun for the boys.

If you prefer making bars out of the mixture, line an 8×8 inch pan with aluminum foil and press the mixture into it. You can then simply cut them into bars to serve. Making bars takes even less time than rolling out the balls if you’re short on time.

I refrigerated these energy bites for a couple of hours. This makes them less sticky when serving. You can omit this step if you’re short on time.You can easily makes bars by pressing mixture into a 8×8 inch pan, then cutting to serve.
