Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large (approx. 18”x12”) baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well with a fork or your hands. Roll into 1 ½ - 2-inch balls and place about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. You should be able to fit all of them on one sheet. Place in pre-heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
