May 16th, 2006


1 c. peanut butter
1 c. dry milk powder
½ to ¾ c. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Optional items:
Granola, rolled oats, or puffed cereal
Nuts , chopped or seeds
Wheat germ
Sesame seeds
1-2 T. water if mixture is too crumbly

Preparation Directions:

Combine peanut butter, milk powder, honey and vanilla in a bowl or plastic bag. Mix with a fork or a spoon until ingredients are well blended.

Roll mix into one inch balls and roll in the coconut.  Set on a plate and chill before serving.

Notes: You can add granola or oats if you like them to be more chewy, or puffed cereal to make them more crunchy. The balls are a little harder to roll with the cereal, so you may prefer to pat this mixture in a pan and then then slice into bars.

You may also want to add chopped nuts if you like.
