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.
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
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups cereal (we use a mixture of puffed wheat and toasted oats).
- 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
- 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.)
- Heat on the stove just until it starts to boil.
- Remove from heat.
- Add cereal and raisins.
- Drop on pieces of wax paper or (for a more festive, party feel) into colorful cupcake holders.
- Let your little helper lick the spoon. Since there’s no raw egg in this recipe, this a mandatory step at our house.
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!
