Milkless Peanut Butter Play Dough

Peanut butter play dough sounded like a great idea...but why do all the recipes have powdered milk as an ingredient? I don't know about you, but to me powdered milk seems kind of expensive to use for this. So, I wondered - would flour work? Answer: yes. Ingredient amounts are approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium bowl, stir peanut butter and honey.
  2. Add flour gradually to desired consistency, switching to hand kneading as it thickens.
  3. NOTE: if you use a hydrogenated peanut butter like Peter Pan, Skippy, Jiff, etc, you may need to increase honey and decrease flour, as these peanut butters are thicker/stiffer than the Smart Balance.
  4. With clean hands on a clean surface, play with cookie cutters, sculpt, or embellish with edibles like raisins, pretzel rods, nuts, etc.
  5. Store in an airtight container in a cool place (refrigeration not recommended) and it should keep for a few days.
