Good and Gooey Peanut Butter Balls
This recipe requires no cooking, so whip up a batch any time. These are high in calcium, iron, and zinc, too! Peanut butter is loaded with nutrients.

1/3 cup ground cold cereal such as corn or bran flakes
2 tablespoons wheat germ
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1-1/2 tablespoons chopped raisins
1 tablespoon chopped nuts (such as peanuts or walnuts)
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Combine until stiff and well mixed.
Roll into 25 small balls and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
If desired, balls can be coated (by rolling) with sesame seeds, more chopped nuts, chopped dried fruit, or more ground cereal.
