All-Star Fudgy Baseballs And Bats

Ingredients

1 cup Carob powder
1 cup Water
cup Honey
cup Peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
cup Wheat germ
cup Rolled oats
2 tablespoon Dry milk powder
cup Unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional)
teaspoon Grated orange rind (optional)


Method

In a small saucepan, combine the carob and water. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Add the honey and peanut butter and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, or until syrup is smooth and slightly thickened.


In a large bowl, mix together the wheat germ, oats, milk powder, coconut, cinnamon and orange rind (if desired).


Pour about one cup of the carob syrup over the dry mixture, or as much as is needed to make a pliable, dough-like consistency. Store the remainder in the refrigerator and use as an icing or to make great milk shakes.


Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll each piece between your palms into 2-inch-long tubes about the circumference of a fountain pen, tapered at one end in the shape of a baseball bat. Roll the rest into marble-sized balls.
