SNACKTIME; Healthy Peanut Butter Bites

Peanut Butter Bites
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup honey
I discovered this recipe here. It is just perfect for a healthy afternoon protein break!
Above, Mark is using my favorite measuring device in the house: the Measure All from Pampered Chef.
It is the only thing we measure peanut butter in.
Mix peanut butter, powedered milk,
flaxseed and
honey into a bowl.
Of course, we double the recipe since we have more than your average sized family.
Get ready to mix, and mix,
and stir and stir. (It is hard for 3 year olds to stir--check out Kimmy's face)
After the ingredients are all well mixed...
rolled into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Refrigerate for about an hour-and then enjoy!
These can store in the refrigerator for up to a month in an airtight container.
Ours don't last this long....
We had some teeny tiny bites, and some larger bites--perfect for the many different sized snackers around here.
What a "cook", and what a face!!

My kids love these. I never have ground flax seed on hand so I always whirl a bit of oatmeal in the blender and use that instead. Works great.

Yum! We used to make those when I was a kid (well, at least with the PB, powdered milk and honey).

Mmm. might have to try those. I just love the Pampered Chef measuring cup too! Great also for brown sugar and honey.
