Y’all!!! This is one of my favorite Playdough recipes!
Many many years ago I would binge watch seasons of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Anyone else with me?! I loved seeing all the little children and getting ideas on how she made recipes or did activities with her kiddos.
On one of the episodes she made edible peanut butter Playdough with her many tiny little children.
At the time I didn’t have any children of my own, but I loved children and I loved peanut butter. I tucked that idea into the back of my mind to save for my own future kiddos.
Fast forward and my first and oldest of 5 children has a life threatening peanut allergy. I still wanted to do this fun activity with him and find a way to do it safely.
Enter our reliable and trusty peanut butter substitute- Sunflower Seed Butter! You can use any seed or nut butter and you just may need to add some powdered sugar if your consistency is a little too gooey or runny. Conversely you could add less powdered sugar if it’s too tough.
This is just 3 ingredients and takes all of less than 5 minutes to whip up! If you make it with SunButter brand sunflower seed butter it’s top 8 free and gluten free!
Because it is edible and made with food ingredients I Store it in the fridge between playing sessions with a shelf life of about 3-5 days.
