Honey Nutters

I am on the hunt for new ideas for lunchboxes. These are super easy to make (the kids help crunch up the graham crackers), and they come together in under ten minutes total. The only drawback is they might get eaten before they make it to the lunchbox.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sleeve graham crackers
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (or any kind of nut butter or seed butter, I would think)
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk (the original recipe called for organic whole milk powder, but we use the lowfat powdered milk, Best Choice brand, and we haven’t died yet)
  • coconut for rolling them in (if you like that kind of thing)

Directions:

  1. Roll the graham crackers into crumbs (or use a food processor).
  2. Melt the honey or syrup and peanut butter  in a sauce pan on the stove until warm and runny.
  3. Add graham crackers, peanut butter mixture, and powdered milk to a bowl and stir together. Roll (gently press and squeeze) mixture into balls (smaller than golf balls), then roll in coconut if you’re using it.

I keep ours in the fridge, but they would be ok on the counter, covered, for a few days too, if they last that long.
