Balls of Energy

EvergreenHealth logo

These nutritious bites from the Disney FamilyFun Magazine are easy to make. They are a great snack to take on the go --to sports practice or on a hike.

Ingredients

  • 1 small banana
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • Finely chopped peanuts, mini-chocolate chips, or shredded coconut for coating

Directions

In a medium bowl, mash together the banana and the peanut butter. Stir in the wheat germ. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls, then roll the balls in one, or a mix, of the coatings. Chill until firm. Makes 14 balls.

For a peanut-free version, substitute sunflower-seed or soy-nut butter for the peanut butter, and omit the peanuts and chocolate chips (which can contain traces of peanut).
