Hey ladies...for those of you who receive wic...
and get tons and tons of peanut butter...here are some fun snacks to do with the kids instead of just the normal peanut butter and jelley.

wash, core and cut up an apple put into a mixing bowl add a table spoon or more of peanut butter..creamy or crunchy to the mixing bowl add a pinch of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon/sugar. mix well and add on bread slices for an apple peanut butter spread.

Cut the top off the washed apple, core and hollow out the apple put the pieces of apple in a mixing bowl throw away the core. Add a crumbled up granola bar or nuts and raisens to the mixing bowl add a little orange juice or any other kind of juice to the mixing bowl. spread peanut butter on the inside of your apple add the contents of the mixing bowl and put the top back on for a yummy apple, peanut butter snack.

Do you have any receipes you would like to share?

  • nana77500: She said WIC mommies because anyone who has been on WIC knows that you have jars and jars of peanut butter, and don't know what to do with it.

    At one point I had 3 unopened jars. I gave one to my mom, and used the other two to make no-bake cookies.

  • No Bake Cookies

    2 c sugar
    1/2 c milk
    1/2 c cocoa powder
    pinch of salt
    1/2 c butter
    1 c peanut butter (about half a jar)
    3 c oatmeal

    In a large saucepan, combine sugar, milk, cocoa, salt, and butter. Heat to boiling. Mix well. Cover pan for 30 seconds, and continue boiling for 1 whole minute. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth. Mix in oatmeal. Let stand/cool for 10 minutes. Using a spoon, drop cookies onto waxes parchment paper (I use cookie sheets, but it sticks a little sometimes). Let cool and harden for 30 min to an hour, depending on how big you make them.

    My absolute fave!
