Spheres of Decadence
1 cup peanut butter (any kind, or make your own)
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup coconut flakes (optional)
1/2 cup whole grain nugget cereal
Just mix all the ingredients together, then roll out into little balls any size you prefer.
Warning-- they are extremely rich, but fun to eat. Try substituting other nut butters for the peanut butter, or use a mixture for different flavors. If the mixture is too moist, add a bit more of the last 3 ingredients, if its too dry, more of the first 2.
I sometimes roll the finishe'd balls in a final coating of wheat germ for extra crunch factor.
You can also add raisins or any other finely chopped dried fruit, or chocolate chips. Whatever you think will sound delicious.
You can keep them in an airtight container on the countertop for up to 10 days. Kids love these things, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying them, too. Good lunchbox item.
