Oat Nut Raisin (or Chocolate!) Balls

I wanted to make a low sugar variation of Classic Oatmeal Cookies – something I could give to the kids for breakfast or as a snack – without the sugar rush and totally spoiling appetites!

These are high protein, low glycemic (low sugar) and my kids approved of these big time! Make them with raisins or mini chocolate chips for some added sweetness!
