Protein Power Balls

Place first four ingredients in a large bowl and combine with large spoon and then, if possible, knead with hands until well mixed. Add last ingredient and incorporate into mixture, small portions at a time. A food processor works well for this also. It will break the crispy brown rice into finer pieces and distribute them more uniformly. Form into small, bite-sized balls. Store in an air-tight container or plastic bag – best in refrigerator. Can be frozen. Makes 15-20 balls. Can double or triple recipe for large groups, but if using processor, it is necessary to work in batches.

Great for after-school snacks.

Feel free to experiment with other crunchy additions such as ground flax seeds or toasted sesame seeds.
