Balls of Energy
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.
- 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
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).
