Kids in the Kitchen - Honey Milk Balls

Little Bit is at the point where she only wants to eat oyster crackers and hot dogs. SO, I broke out my baby food (and toddler food) bible - Super Baby Food, by Ruth Yaron. It has so many good toddler foods that I don't know why I forget to use it more often. For our Kids in the Kitchen post Mimi made Honey Milk Balls. Grind 1 cup of oatmeal in the blender until fine (Do I get Worst Mom of the Week award, for letting my 1 year old operate the blender? Look how much fun she is having ;)

Mix 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, and 3/4 cup powdered milk, along with the ground oats in a bowl. Stir.

Make into bite sized balls. They need no refrigeration.

And look! Little Bit is eating them. This is a success!

  1. I'd let my 2 year old operate it, it's not like they could get seriously hurt with all the safety features.

  2. I think pushing the button is fine :D It's not like her hands are anywhere near the blade!

    Looks like they had a lot of fun!!

  3. They look like they are having so much fun..CUTE!!

  4. Those sound REALLY good!! Is the powdered milk essential? I have everything else:-)

  5. Those sound great! Glad you found something she'll eat! And I bet older kids will like them too!

  6. I have that book...I should pull it out!

  7. wonder how they would be with nuts/choc chips in them - nowhere near as healthy off course but sound delicious. My mum used to make something similar with apricots will have to get the recipe off her

  8. I love your hair!

    No you can not win the Worst Momma Award! You will have to try harder than this. Your babes are learning to much and having fun doing it to ever have you be referred to as a "Worse" mom!!!

    I think nuts and chocolate would be great additions.

    And I think you are a super MOM! You are smart, creative, careful and a wonderful teacher. You are doing a wonderful work with your beautiful children.

    Have a wonderful day!!!
