Monkey balls

Ok, I tried these today and they are super delicious. They are very easy, and totally breakfast food!! I think if I make them again, I will add some more protein, like whey or soy protein, but then again that stuff might be too processed for my current way of eating. I did add about a tablespoon of honey to the mix.
