this looks good, debbie. I think I'll have to try it. Do you by any chance know the nutritional values for 1 of them?

I was curious about the nutritional info too. Found this recipe online that's very similar. Looks like it's about 148 cal per energy ball. More info here-- No Bake Energy Bites Recipe - Food.com - 473258

Jenai - I don't have the nutritional info on this one. I make them for my son, so I never plug in the info here on fitday. I make the Cookie Dough Bites for myself

JohnCecil - The vanilla extract is not necessary. Adapt the recipe to your liking!
