Peanut Butter Oatmeal Snacks



Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.

I love sending my kids to school with a homemade treat in their lunch bags.  What I love even more is when that treat is healthy.  I bookmarked this recipe from Mommy's Kitchen a while ago and I am so glad I finally had a chance to make these yummy snacks.  The recipe yields 40 pb balls and I thought that would be too many so I cut the recipe in half....big mistake!  I think next time I may even double this recipe (I need some extra for me - I can't walk by the refrigerator without popping one of these bad boys in my mouth - so good!)    Thank you Mommy's Kitchen for this awesome recipe!  Enjoy!!

recipe from Mommy's Kitchen
What you need:
1 cup honey
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
2 cups dry powdered milk
3 cups quick or old fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
1 - 2 tablespoons wheat germ
1/2 cup chocolate chips


What you do:
Mix all the ingredients together. Form into balls with hands.

 Freeze on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper until firm. Remove from freezer and store in a large zip lock bag in the refrigerator.

  8. Great recipe! I have all of the ingredients except the powdered milk. I could add in something else to keep the consistency good like ground nuts.

  9. Do you know what the powdered milk adds to it? Do you think you could omit it?
