*Holiday Snow Ball Cookies

I haven't tested this recipe myself - it was submitted by one of our visitors:
Holiday "Snow" Balls

3/4 Cup Almond Butter
1/3 Cup Vegetable *glycerin
2 teaspoons vanilla (no alcohol)
2 1/2 Cups Crispy brown rice cereal (or 1/2 crispy rice cereal 1/2 quick oats)
1/2 Cup chopped or crushed almonds
1/2 Cup unsweetened carob chips (optional)
1/2 Cup unsweetened *coconut

1. Heat almond butter and vegetable glycerin together over very low heat just until creamy. Remove from heat and cool.
2. Mix the rest of the ingredients, except coconut. Shape into balls. Roll in coconut and refrigerate.

this is one that has to be watched carefully. FRESH coconut is fine - but even the coconut that does not have sugar added can have a high amount of mold.

I would only use fresh - buying your own whole coconut and cutting it out.

Yum. I just made these, as I was looking for something simple to make that will travel. I made loads of changes because I was missing some of the ingredients, but the basic idea is still the same.

I used peanut butter and also millet/rice flakes (with fruit juice in them.) I crushed up the flakes and had probably about 1/2 cup too much. If I use flakes again (I'd like to make this with the cereal the recipe calls for), I'll use about half a cup less. I now have a small bowl of flakes, carob chips, and coconut waiting to be eaten because there wasn't enough of the pb/glycerin to coat it all.

They taste great--what a wonderful treat.
