Refuel Recipe: Oatmeal Energy Balls

Welcome back to Refuel Recipes! Each month, we’re gonna focus on one key ingredient that’s both delicious and nutritious and teach you how to incorporate it into your diet in a realistic, sustainable, tasty way! 

In case you missed it, this month we’re highlighting oats! This versatile little carbohydrate packs a big fiber punch and comes in many shapes and sizes. Before you dive into our third oat-centric recipe, look back at our first oat recipe to learn about the many amazing benefits of incorporating oats into your diet!
