Friday's Favorite Farm Recipe

Today, Son #1's track meet season starts.  Because of cold and wet weather there have been some meet postponements so the meet season is condensed down to three very busy weeks.  This recipe comes from #1's dietitian.  The power balls go to school with him for a mid-morning and a mid-afternoon snack so he is ready for track practice after school.  Son #1 has a very difficult time gaining weight and maintaining a good energy level, so we take every opportunity we can to get healthy calories into him.  It has become a favorite after school snack for all three boys. 

Energy Balls

1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered milk

Mix together and form into balls.  May be chilled or frozen.
Yield:  18 balls
Nutrition Info:  15 grams carbs each, 115 calories, 4 grams protein

I usually add in a 1/2 cup of chopped, dark chocolate chips to this mix.  This will change the nutritional makeup.

Go Central Warriors!!
