A healthy, tasty, easy snack for kids. This recipe is from the Kinder Krunchies cookbook; I have made a few changes for variety. These travel well and are filling enough to keep your little one going (without whining) until lunch or supper time. Enjoy!

  • 2 12 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (or dried cranberries, or dried apple, or for a treat, mini chocolate chips)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 14 cup coconut (i have made them without the coconut)
  • 2 cups sesame seeds, approximately


  1. Mix all ingredients except the sesame seeds together in a bowl.
  2. Form into small balls.
  3. Roll in the sesame seeds.

Five stars for fun!!! My 5-year-old daughter had such a great time making these with me, and she loved eating them. My two tips: 1) butter your hands before you start making the balls of dough, 'cause this stuff is sticky. 2)If you're having trouble finding a large amount of sesame seeds, look in the bulk section of a natural foods store. Thanks for sharing this fun recipe.

Mom started making these when she got on a health kick in the '70's, and my little brother & I couldn't get enough. I now use low-fat peanut butter (better consistency) and fat-free powdered milk. Even my husband loves them.

Darn yummy. I used almond butter (allergic to peanut butter), dried cherries, sunflower seeds and no coconut. Easy to make and delicious.
