However, following in the footsteps of my friend Lindsay @ Cotter Crunch, I decided to post a recipe that is worth repeating.
I have gotten more comments and feedback about these balls than any other recipe. They are a fantastic snack, low in fat and have some protein to boot. They also happen to be vegan.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. (I think it is time for me to make them again. ;)

Crispy Peanut Butter Balls (Makes 30)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup rice cereal
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper.
Mix peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 45-60 seconds. At the same time, combine oat flour, wheat bran, cereal, flax, coconut and chocolate chips.
Remove peanut butter mixture and stir. If it has not liquefied, heat for another 10-20 seconds.
Pour into dry ingredients and mix with a fork until incorporated. Take about a heaping tablespoon of the mixture and squeeze in your hand to form into a ball.
Place balls on the cookie sheet and freeze for 15-20 minutes. Store in the fridge.
