- 1/2 peanut butter
- 1/2 instant nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs, finely crushed
Wash your hands. In large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter and dry milk. Add honey and mix well. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Mold each piece into the shape of a dog bone. Sprinkle bones on both sides with graham cracker. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Helpful hints: To help peanut butter and honey come out more easily, first lightly spray measuring cup and measuring spoon with cooking spray. A glass of low fat milk tastes great with this treat. For fun, you also can serve a "bone" and some apple slices in a soup bowl or plastic container that looks a bit like a dog bowl. Safety Tips: Introduce this treat when children are at least 3 to 4 years of age. Before that, kids can have trouble swallowing peanut butter without choking. Peanutes are the cause of one of the most common food allergies in children, so be sure to tell kids who are visiting that this snack contains peanut butter. For children with this kind of allergic reaction, even a touch or tiny bite of the food allergen can be harmful.
