Peanut Butter Balls

I found these on Tasty Kitchen.  They were described as 'Healthy' so I figured a healthy snack that has peanut butter and oatmeal must be good.  I substituted ground flax for the wheat germ since I had some in the house, and they turned out great!  I made a full batch of these and they lasted a LONG time (it makes about 50 balls), but I would bring a few to work with me every day as a mid-morning snack and loved them.  The next time I made them I only made a half batch and that seemed like a much better amount for only two of us!
