The “endless” means there are many different combinations of ingredients that you can choose to put in these yummy delights tailoring them to your own taste buds.
This is the recipe I used for our elk hunting this season, to help keep our energy stabilized.
½ Cup Peanut Butter (or any other kind of nut butter)
1 Cup Honey (or other similar sweetener with same consistency)
1 Cup toasted, old fashioned oats @ 350° for 10 minutes or so. (Toasting the oats gives it a nut like flavor; you do not have to toast the oats-it up to you)
½ Cup Wheat germ (the wheat germ, chia and protein equal 1 cup – in the original recipe it called for 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut you can substitute any dry ingredient)
¼ Cup Chia Seed (rich in Omega3 fatty acids)
¼ Cup Hemp Protein Powder (I used this because it has so many great properties like Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, absorbs faster than whey, cleanses liver by burning fat, easier to digest than whey and has a nutty flavor) Note: it will give food a green tint.
2 Tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt, (optional check salt content of peanut butter that may be enough)
1-2 Tsp cinnamon (or any of your favorite spice combination)
½ Cup Craisins (or any other kind of add in like nuts, seeds, fruit or chocolate roughly chopped)
Make sure all ingredients are room temperature or warm in the microwave for a few seconds to soften. In a large bowl add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla and salt.
Stir to combine.
Add remaining ingredients, refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Remove from the fridge, scoop out and roll into balls.
Note: if it’s too sticky you can add more dry ingredients or roll them in something like ground nuts or coconut.
Place in airtight container and freeze until ready to use. You can wrap individually for the backpack too.
Makes approx 2 dozen depending on the size you chose to make.
Delicious! I didn’t think my husband would like these partially due to the greenish color, but he thought they were great.
