These are so good and fun. I omitted the raisins and added coconut, mini chocolate chips and rolled in wheat germ. A huge hit and so versatile! Thank you!

What a yummy little snack! The protein keeps you satisfied. Great on the go nibbles, too!

I used to make a slightly varied version of this when I was a kid with my mom. Our difference was no cereal or powdered sugar and we rolled our balls in wheat germ. Yummy!
