Nut Butter Balls

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by LeeDelaino

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.
