Vegetarian Candy Recipe
Dietary Candy Recipe
This vegetarian candy is a peanut butter treat with the addition of sesame seeds, healthful wheat germ, peanuts, brown rice syrup, raisins, plus lemon as a flavor enhancer. For nutrition, consider wheat germ alone: It provides an impressive bundle of nutrients including vitamin E, folate, phosphorus, thiamin, zinc and magnesium.

1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup wheat germ
4 tablespoons brown rice syrup
1 teaspoon lemon extract (optional)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup peanuts
1/4 cup ground walnuts or almonds
Toast seeds and wheat germ at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Cream together organic brown rice syrup and peanut butter.
Add extract. Add seeds, raisins, nuts and wheat germ.
With hands form into 12 to 15 balls. Roll into nuts.
