Peanut Butter Raisin Chews

My grandmother and mom studied child development and nutrition in college and our meals and snacks reflected their knowledge, skill, and wisdom.Wee had treats in moderation and often those treats were healthy. One of the ones I remember fondly is mom’s Peanut Butter Raisin Chews. These slightly sweet confections are quite tasty and healthy.

Peanut Butter Raisin Chews

½ cup peanut butter (if crunch style, a little more)

2/3 cup no-fat dry milk solids

1/3 cup corn syrup or molasses

½ cup confectioner’s or granulated sugar

½ cup raisins

Mix all ingredients together.

Roll into balls

Chill in refrigerator

Makes about 2 dozen

Tip: Measure out the dry ingredients first. You can then use the same measuring cup to measure out the wet ingredients.
