I have a chef friend, Nancy Russman in Louisville Kentucky, who spends a lot of her time teaching kids to cook and eat healthier snacks. When she first met me and my son there at a Julia Child birthday party I was cooking for, she made a big impression on him, much bigger than Julia! Probably because she's very short, and closer to his size than Julia. She taught him the cheer of "Go Cats!" in support of the Louisville Wildcats. We also had a nice tour of the Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat Factory, a visit to a bourbon distillery for another Julia party and a visit to my favorite goat cheese maker, Judy Schad, in nearby Greenville Indiana. This is one of Nancy's kid-friendly recipes that the kids can help make.
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 tablespoons peanut butter
- 2 cups granola
- 2 to 4 tablespoons milk, or as needed
In a large bowl, mix together the honey and peanut butter. Using a spatula, stir in the granola. Add enough milk to just moisten--you want it to stick together. Form into balls. Chill until ready to serve.
