The name of this kid-friendly snack makes me smile.  My mom used to make a version of this snack for my brother and I growing up.  It was definitely a treat as the tastes of peanut butter and honey blend perfectly together.  And, it was a treat for my body too as the peanut butter provides protein and the flax seed meal provides fiber, anti-oxidants, and of course omega-3 fatty acids.  I now make this for my own children, and I hope they will have the same memories I do when they are older.

“Gutty Putty”

  • 1 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flax seed meal or ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup finely shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup honey
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Form balls by rolling the mixture between the palms of your hands.  My kids love this!
  3. Refrigerate for about an hour.
