No-Bake Power Poppers

(I adapted the recipe from http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/. She adapted it from someone else. Etc, etc. This recipe is so variable and is found in so many places online.)

My husband LOVES no-bake cookies. It was a childhood favorite in his family. Meanwhile, honestly, I can take or leave them. I’m more of a granola bar sort of gal. So, when I found this recipe for bite-sized, no-bake bundles of energizing goodness, I was sold. I did, however, want to make them my own, which I will share with you.
