This post is brought to you by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Blueprint Social. You mean someone offered to pay me to watch Winnie the Pooh and share with you one of our favorite snack recipes?! Yes! And I gladly accepted! My positive review of Pooh is entirely my own.

Honey Puffs-kids and parents love this easy, no bake recipe!

There’s a Pooh lover in every family. (Am I the only one immature enough to chuckle at the childish pun?) At our house, the Pooh fanatic is my husband, Nate. Of course I grew up liking Pooh. But Nate knows the songs. He remembers ever story line. He passed on a collection of Winnie the Pooh books to our girls. He has the entire movie memorized, and he smiled the entire time we watched it. 

Naturally, our (almost) three-year-old daughter’s first exposure to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was a BIG deal at our house. And big occasions require special party food. We honored the silly old bear with our favorite kid-friendly honey snack. What makes it so kid-friendly? Well, it’s super easy and relatively healthy. I call them no bake cookies, but they’re way too healthy to be real cookies! I saw a similar recipe in a magazine ages ago, but over the years we’ve adapted it and made it our own. Here’s our version!

Pooh’s Favorite Party Snack–Easy No Bake Cookies

Honey Puffs--Kids LOVE these snacks! No baking and only 4 ingredients.

Directions:

  1. Combine peanut butter and honey in a saucepan. (Tip: to keep my peanut butter and honey from sticking to my measuring cups, I spray the measuring cups with cooking spray beforehand.)No bake cookies for kids.

  6. Let your little helper lick the spoon. Since there’s no raw egg in this recipe, this a mandatory step at our house.Honey Puffs--Kid-friendly no bake cookies. (These are too healthy to really be called cookies! But they're so yummy! Kids love them.)

Yummy, right? I think Pooh would approve!

Pooh may be a classic character, but he’s keeping up with the times. Follow the silly old bear on facebook (My, oh my! Isn’t he popular?) for more Pooh bear fun!

    1. Natural peanut butter is so runny, and the peanut butter is what holds the yumminess together. You could try adding other things to make it stick–like brown sugar or more honey. But even then it would probably turn to liquid at room temperature. :( At least that’s what happens with my natural peanut butter. Thanks for the feedback!

  1. Please use care when using Peanut Butter – some children and adults can have deadly reactions to it. Some children are so sensitive that someone eating peanut butter in the morning and then coming in contact in the afternoon and breathes on the child can set of a reaction – that is life threatening.
    I personally know someone who died from eating peanut butter and another very allergic to it (breath sensitive).
    In Australia schools and preschools are NOT PERMITTED by law to have peanut butter in them.

    Personally I love peanut butter but PLEASE take care for those who can not tolerate it.

Leave a note. We love hearing from you!
