    Other possible ingredients: raisins, nuts, oat, coconut, cocoa powder, carob powder, chocolate chips....use your imagination!


Combine all ingredients in a bowl or plastic bag and knead until well mixed.

This has the consistency of a soft playdough, so it's fun to "play" with!

  • I'm so excited to find this recipe online! We made it growing up, and I still make these. It's the best snack! It always turns out delicious and It's great for early morning snacks or when I'm in a hurry. I use crunchy peanut butter and I add wheat germ, raisins, chocolate chips and sunflower seeds. - 8/18/15

  • I think I knead to use it when I have kids here that I am babysitting for someone else. I used to make a lot of money babysitting when I was a teenager because I always took things for the kids to do, whether it was store bought cookie batter or craft projects or whatever. The kids had fun! Thanks! - 1/13/10
