Healthy, Tasty, Nutritious & Economical Edible Palydough

Makes the size of 1 tennis ball


1. 3/4 cup grahams flour
2. 1/2 cup water
3.. 1 TBS honey or syrup
4. 1/2 cup ground oats
5. A few drops of food color (optional)


Mix all ingredients together.

Additional Information:

Our Little FECS have been asking me to make edible playdough for him, since he tried out for the first time, when he was 3 years old. I have made edible playdough out of nut butter, but they are very expensive.

I was trying to find some healthy, simple and cheap way of making edible playdough, but couldn't find it on the net. Most of them are super duper unhealthy - some even is made from just sugar icing!!!

Surely it cannot be so difficult to make healthy and tasty play dough. So I started experimenting using some flour, water and honey... then I added ground oatmeal and it still feels good like play dough, at the same time, it was tasty and healthy. Most of all, it is very simple and uses only three to four ingredients :-)

I prefer the natural color, but our Little FECS often asked to have them in multi-colors.

I grind the roll oats myself. To make it even more nutritious, you can also sprinkle in brewer's yeast and wheatgerm.

Graham flour, ground roll oats, honey/syrup and water
