Peanut Butter Snack Spread

A quick and easy spread to keep around for bagels, crackers, bananas or use as desired. This spread is also good enough to eat with a spoon!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp non-fat instant dry milk
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter

Instructions

In a small bowl, combine the dry milk, water, and vanilla, stirring to moisten. Add honey and peanut butter, stiffing slowly until blended. Use as spread on crackers. Refrigerate, but if too stiff to spread let sit to room temperature to soften.
