If they are baked as balls, do they stay soft and raw (like other energy oat balls? How long do they keep for?

Hi Melissa<br /><br />if you bake them they are not longer raw - you can leave them raw but in the summer they need to stay in the fridge and I would omit the baking powder. To stay fresh they would only last a couple of days - up to a week unless you keep them in a sealed container.
