Tip

Variation: To increase your toddler’s dietary variety, you might like to replace half of the apricots with dried figs. Like apricots, figs are a good source of iron.

    I switched water and OJ for Kefir and I switched wheatgerm for Flaxseed.
    Rolled the balls in Akta vite too add a little more nutrition and a hint of chocolate flavour.
    Hope the kids enjoy

    So good, used weetbix insteadof wheat germ and did half sunflower seeds and half almonds. Kids love them (and I'm struggling not to demolish them too!)

    Submitted by Ashleigh123 on 16. October 2013 - 10:14.

    Delicious - made these with one wheatbix as everyone suggested.

    Also find it easy to place the coconut in a bag - and you can cover 6 or 7 balls at once instead of rolling them individually.

    Submitted by thermobexta on 6. May 2013 - 16:54.

    I've just made these and they are really great. I used sunflower seeds instead of almonds so my daughter can take them to school and also added a tablespoon of nutraorganics super greens and reds for extra goodness. Will definitely be making these again, the kids love them!!

    Submitted by AliRo on 5. May 2013 - 11:31.

    Yum!  Just made these and they taste great, much better than shop bought!.  I ground up one weetbix really finely to use in place of the wheatgerm.  Also, I thought I made them small but think next time I will make them smaller, more like bite size.  Need to be refidgerated to keep firm.

    I was thinking I didn't want to buy wheatgerm either. Maybe chia seeds would be good?

    Submitted by AmyElf on 4. May 2013 - 17:11.

    AliRo I'm making these today and using buckwheat to bind. It's a gluten free option which I already have in my pantry. I didn't want to have to buy 500g of wheatgerm either. I would imagine anykind of flour would be ok.

  • Hi, I used polenta (cornmeal)

    Submitted by Weekend Cook on 4. May 2013 - 13:50.

    Hi, I used polenta (cornmeal) instead and it worked a treat. I also substituted maple syrup for honey as I didn't have any and that was fine too. They are delish! Perfect sweet treat in the arvo or after dinner for me!

    I made a similar (almost identical) recipe from Feeding Fussy Kids yesterday and the recipe called for wheatgerm and I didn't have it so I used a weetbix crushed up and it worked fine tmrc_emoticons.)

    Oh and I must say the ones I made weren't very sweet so I think the maple syrup in this recipe will make them perfect!!

    What could you use instead of wheatgerm to bind?  I don't ever use wheatgerm for anything else so don't want to buy any just to make this recipe.
