Raw, No-Bake, Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Energy Bites

Anyone else enjoying memories of that radical thing we used to do, not that long ago, called “gathering IN-PERSON”?!

I am, and of course, my mind goes right to “snickerdoodle”, naturally!

Need a translator?  Here’s how that worked, for me:
Friends… Family… Loved Ones… Holidays… Christmas… Christmas Cookies… Snickerdoodles!

You’re still with me, right?

This recipe is so easy, we can enjoy these snickerdoodles any day; they’re not just for Christmas, anymore.   In fact, I recommend you always keep some in your freezer for that perfect any-time “snack-attack” (since it’s not like anyone’s just going to “drop in on you!)!
