Oatmeal Balls

I made these for a snack for my daughters and their friends. This is my recipe, though I did read about a dozen recipes online to get an idea of what kinds of proportions I needed to be looking at. This recipe made 12 and come out to about 90 calories each.

Oatmeal Balls

1.5 cups quick oats
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla
scant 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter, after pouring off the oil
3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips, finely chopped walnuts, and raw sunflower seeds

Mix all together in a bowl, then take a small handful, squeeze into a ball, and put on a plate. 

These are very high in fat, as you can guess from the ingredients;  I would only eat one as a snack on occasion.
