    LeeDelaino's Note:

    I think the concept for these was developed for camping and hiking, but I make these for my kids as a healthier alternative to sweet snacks. There are tons of possibilities for variation on almost all of the ingredient which I like a lot.

      Wonderful taste, very nutritious. I have used toasted coconut instead of skimmed milk powder and I think it works better as it gives more flavour. I also added chopped nuts as suggested in optional additions. Next time I may try with nuts and dried fruit. I managed to make 18 balls.

      Wow! This is an excellent recipe. I saw it while looking for recipes with blackstrap molasses. I'm trying to stay away from processed sugar and flour, and this recipe doesn't have either. Perfect! The only thing I changed was using unsweetened coconut flakes instead of the skim milk powder, and I didn't use sesame seeds. Also, there is no way this recipe could make 120 balls. My half recipe made 18 balls, each 1 in. in diameter. Thank you so much!

      A new favorite for family trips! These are easy to make and taste great! I used the unsweatened shredded coconut instead of skim milk powder. I also used a natural peanut butter. The crunch of the toasted sesame seeds added a wonderful texture. I ended up with 30 (1/2 oz) balls. I formed the balls, rolled in sesame seeds, and placed on a cookie sheet to chill. Once chilled I placed them all in a ziploc bag to keep in the fridge or cooler for quick snacks.
