These are wonderful to snack on when you got the munchies for something sweet. The peanut butter is very satisfying, and its very healthy.
- 1⁄3 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Place ingredients into food blender in the order listed.
- Turn on and blend until mixture is evenly mixed and crumbly looking.
- Use a small melon ball scoop to make the peanut butter balls. Push the peanut butter mixture in there so its nice and compact like brown sugar.
- Put onto a plate or in a container and put in the fridge. You can eat them right away but they are really good after they've sat in the fridge for a little while. Enjoy!
- You can also use creamy peanut butter, but I'm a crunchy kinda gal. Also you can roll the balls in additional wheat germ for an even crunchier ball.
I make these gluten free, no wheat bran, and they are excellent. I also use smooth peanut butter. I plan on adding rice bran when I find some to add more fiber. Both my son and I are have celiac and fiber is a must in our diets. My husband who is not celiac loves them too. They are easy to make. I toss the ingredients in my mini food possessor and whips up quick. I used a 1/2 teaspoon scoop and made the balls. I got almost 20 of them. I also think they would make a great filling for in between two crackers!
These were decent. My kids liked them a lot more than I did, but that's okay, since it is for them. I love the wheat germ in these. My two year old twins really liked these. They don't eat much, so I'm trying to get as many nutrients in them as I can. I used my mini pampered chef cookie scoop and only got 9 balls. With five kids, that doesn't last long! So, next time I make these I will have to triple the batch.
Fantastic! I didnt have wheat Germ but i will be getting some next grocery trip. I just added Honey until it was the consistency i wanted. My 4 yo LOVES these! Thanks for sharing
