Milkless Peanut Butter Play Dough

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by EasyFamilyPleasers

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.

Fast and easy! I had all of the ingredients on hand. Perfect sensory activity for my 1 year old

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.
