1 cup prunes
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup nut butter (I used peanut butter but next time I will try almond)
1 cup protein powder
1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used raisins but next time I would use cranberries)
1/2 cup wheat germ, divided
Plave prunes in warm water for 10 min to soften
In a food processor, blend prunes and wter. Add nut butter and process until smooth. Add more water as needed. Add protein powder, flaxseeds, cinnamon and salt and process to combine thouroughly (can you spell thouroughly without looking or is it just me?). Any ways, add the dried fruit and 1/4 cup of the wheat germ and pulse just enough to incorporate them into the mixture.
Grab some dough about the size of a small ball (not a tennis ball like I did, but more like an apricot) and roll it between your palms. I dampened my hands when it got to sicky. Roll the balls in the rest of the wheat germ and place the balls on a plate. Freeze until chewy…I had to freeze my tennis balls for 6 hrs but small ones should be 2 hrs.
