Kara's Schweddy Balls

2 cups raisins
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1t. cinnamon
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3 cup coconut flakes

In a food processor, blend raisins, almonds and peanut butter.

Place in a gallon size ziploc bag with all the other ingredients. Mix until everything is combined.

With a tablespoon, pull out a bit of the mixture and roll in a ball. Repeat until the mixture is gone. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and serve as a delicious, protein packed snack for your kids!

*Thanks Bestie Kara for this great snack!

"Sweddy balls" is one of my all-time favorite SNL skits. Huge fan of Alec Baldwin and Molly Shannon!

Great post!

OMG, I totally referred to them as 'Chocolate Shweddy Balls (while serving one to Colin)!!" We are so in-tune! ;0)
