I don't remember where I got this from. I was so happy to find an easy-to-prepare vegan snack though. I love these things, let me know what you think

This is such a versatile recipe and I love that it is full of good ingredients and can be made even more healthful if you want. I use a lot of ground flax seeds in my recipes and substituted 1/4 cup of ground flax for half of the flour. Used non-hydrogenated natural peanut butter, and ground hazelnuts instead of the sunflower seeds because that's what I had on hand. I bought a bag of ground hazelnuts at Trader Joe's a while ago and have been wondering what I was going to do with them. Using walnuts would increase the omega 3's considerably. If you used walnuts AND flax seeds you would have incredibly healthy little omega 3 balls. I rolled some in ground hazelnuts, some in ground flax, and some in wheat germ. All are good and it's just a matter of preference which one you like best. Ground peanuts would also be good since they contain peanut butter. I would like these just a tad sweeter so will adjust accordingly next time. You could make wonderful rum balls with this recipe and get a good dose of healthy stuff along with your booze! Great recipe that will be fun to experiment with. I wonder if you omitted the flour altogether and substituted ground walnuts or flax seeds you could fit a couple of these into South Beach? Wishful thinking?As is I give them 4 stars but with changes to suit our taste more they will be 5 stars. I'm glad I found this recipe.
