I think these needed a little extra sweetener. With all the healthy stuff, the flavor was a tad bitter(?). Although, I realize I forgot the vanilla, so maybe that's what did it. I used chopped dried cranberries and pineapple, 1/4 C sunflower and 1/4 C pumpkin seeds, 1/2 C shredded coconut (in the mixture), almond butter (that I tried to make at home and had turned out more like almond meal! So this was great for it) and a little peanut butter. It was VERY sticky, so I tried adding some flour and some oatmeal to stiffen it up but still had to grease my hands to roll them. They are quite soft, even in the fridge. I will try them again and play with getting them more stiff (like PB balls) bcz I think these would be a great snack for the kids. I also used powdered skim milk and rolled them in wheat germ, as kids don't like coconut (will try something else next time too).
