Servings 1 cup


  • 1 cup Sprouts All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Sprouts Canola Oil
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2-3 drops food coloring


  • Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly stir in the oil, warm water, and 2-3 drops of food coloring until the mixture is well combined.
  • Transfer the dough to a flat surface and let it sit for a few minutes. It may feel a bit sticky, but DO NOT add more flour. As the dough sits, the salt will absorb the extra moisture. Knead well.
  • If your dough is sticky after about 5 minutes, add an additional 2 tablespoons of flour at a time until it is the perfect consistency.


Store in a zip-lock bag or airtight container, and place in the refrigerator. If you notice the playdough getting a bit dry, you can add a few drops of water and knead that into the dough.
