snacky treat from my childhood

I found a recipe recently for Peanut Butter Balls, and I flashed back to my childhood. I don't know who started it, maybe juniper, but we would make these treats all the time. A great little snack to take on an afternoon adventure or if you need a little dessert. It only takes a few things from your pantry, no baking and are wonderfully delicious.

1 c. peanut butter or almond butter
1 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. raisins
1.4 c. honey
1.2 c. coconut flakes


Roll into bite size balls & coat with coconut. Vary the recipe & add any nuts, chocolate chips, other dried fruit, ferina or even dried milk powder. My own little version of 'chunks of energy'.

I'm going to make this with the boys tomorrow. I think we used to eat something similar when I was little. Gotta love the universal influence of hippie parents.
