I used crunchy pb, agave nectar, a drop of vanilla extract, and half of a Cherry Jubilee protein powder packet (leftover from an attempt at a cherry soyshake... was a little too gritty for a shake) which I rolled in Back to Nature's Organic Cherry Vanilla Granola for a tasty crunchy cherry treat... and it turned out lovely :) I love a good crunchy snack! thanks for posting this quick & easy recipe.


These are awesome. I substituted chocolate flavored whey protein powder for the soy milk powder, used almond butter instead of peanut and I toasted the coconut first - delicious!!


I love Nutty Buddies!  I gave them as a Christmas present, and then had to make more for myself.  I like to use crunchy peanut butter and roll them in coconut.  Next time I might try currants instead of raisins.  They make a really great portable snack for a starving college student!


I only got 20 balls out of my batch (probably due to premature  temptation).  They were excellent!  I rolled some in shredded unsweetened coconut which made them not as sweet.  A few that I rolled in chopped walnuts had a sweeter tasted which I preferred.
