A treat for your tots.


Last week I got this recipe from Mo's pediatrician. She suggested it in place of "those cheesy crackers that are so bad for our babies." Yeah.. um.. my babies NEVER eat those ;)
I decided to whip up a batch when we got home to see if Moses really would love them. And, gasp, he does! I have made them both with the graham cracker and without and I like them much better without. If you do leave it out add more flax seed! If you want to take these out and about I would go ahead and add the graham crackers, they are a tiny bit sticky without it.

1/2 cup nut butter
1/3 cup powdered milk
1-2 T honey or agave nectar
1-2 T ground graham cracker
1-2 T ground flax seed

Combine all ingredients in a mixer and mix until combined. Then press into small balls with your fingers. Store in the refrigerator.

**I usually post recipes at chowcity.blogspot.com, but I wanted those of you that don't check in there to have this recipe!**

Sounds yummy! And...we don't eat those ridiculous cheese crackers, either. Ahem... We never do. No way. No can do. ;)
