Mom's Protein Balls

Here's a yummy, healthy treat for school lunches or an anytime snack. My mom has been making these protein balls for years.  It's a great way to use up the cereal at the bottom of the bag or whatever dried fruit you have in your pantry.  That's exactly what I did yesterday with the frosted mini-wheats and golden raisins. 

For the protein balls you'll need:
1/2 cup peanut butter (plain or crunchy)
3/4 cup dry milk
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup crushed cereal (rice cereal, corn flakes, shredded wheat, whatever you like)

In a mixing bowl, combine the above ingredients.

Then add:
1/3 cup raisins or dried cranberries (I used a little bit of both.)
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Mix together and roll into teaspoon-size balls.  Keep refrigerated until ready to eat so the balls stay together. 

Makes 16 protein balls.
