The Other Kind Of Power Balls You Should Be Thinking About Right Now

All of them are winners.

The Powerball has been confirmed as the "biggest jackpot in the history of the world," ballooning at the lump sum of $1.3 billion before Wednesday night's drawing. While dreams of that big-money win might have you running out to buy a few (dozen) tickets, we have come across another power ball you should be thinking about: bite-size, sweet, energy-filled balls that you can eat.

These little morsels, often called power balls because they are full of good-for-you fuel, are also known as energy bites. The two-bite treats are filled with powerful ingredients like oats, peanut butter and protein powders -- and don't require any baking. In other words, they're amazing and you should eat them.

Here are 12 recipes to get you started -- all of them a guaranteed win.
