Oatmeal Power Balls

I have a decent amount of travel for work. This week, travel meant getting up at five and driving across state for a meeting that I would be late for. The biggest issue is that I am not a morning person. The only way I will be staying awake is blasting a mix of metallica, sick puppies, and three days grace, and popping this oatmeal power balls in my mouth every 15 minutes.

These cookies are small, not overly sweet, and perfect for streamlining on a road trip.
