Hello Friends…Today I am sharing a long time favorite quick, easy and healthy treat…Shhh! Don’t tell your kids that last part!
My boys get up really early…everyday…There is NO sleeping in at the Krieger house. And 9 out of 10 days, the first thing out of their mouths is “I need a snack”…Not “Good Morning Mom” or “Mom, after you adjust your eyes and get a cup of coffee and take a minute to wake up, would you please get me something to eat?” Nope, nothing like that.
Needless to say, I am not quite ready to fix breakfast.
Snack= fruit snacks or some other junk food and for a while, I was just giving them a fruit snack or a bowl of dry cereal to munch on. But that was before I out-smarted them. I had forgotten about this recipe!
A couple weeks ago, I whipped up a batch of these and they were an instant hit.
- 1/2 c. honey
- 1 c. dry milk
- 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
- 1 c. (Old Fashioned) uncooked oats
- Combine honey and peanut butter.
- Work in slowly dry milk, then oats.
- Shape into 1 inch balls.
- Let stand on wax paper a few minutes until set.
- Store in sealed container in fridge or freezer.
Now, I am ready for the early morning “I need a snack.” I give the boys a few of these with some raisins or a hard boiled egg if we are in a pinch with breakfast time. They are even great to take as snacks in the car…I freeze them and have them ready.
Did you see how I made the fun little Heart Food Picks?
