This is a great snack if you’re craving something sweet but not all of the processed sugary sickly sweet completely bad for you snacks lol. This recipe still has about the same amount of calories as its normal counterpart regular puppy chow, or muddy buddies for all you non-southerners, but it has half the sugar and twice the protein.
1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
2 Tbs Coconut Oil
2 Tbs Cocoa Powder (I used Hersey’s Special Dark)
1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (I used BioTrust but any work)
- 1 Scoop = 1 1/4 Tbs
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter (I used organic its lower in calories)
8 Cups Chex Cereal (Again lower calorie and gluten free)
3 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
- 3 Scoops = 3 3/4 Tbs
First you want to melt the chocolate. It should take about 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave, that’s the easiest. You want to make sure you stir every 30 seconds or the chocolate could burn.
Next in a smaller bowl melt the coconut oil. This only takes about 20-30 seconds.
Now you want add the cocoa powder and just ONE scoop of protein powder. Mix until those three are completely combined.
Add your coconut oil mixture to your dark chocolate and mix completely until combined.
Next add your peanut butter again mix, mix, mix.
Have your chosen chex set up and then add your chocolately goodness to the chex and stir making sure all the pieces are coated.
Next add your chex to a plastic bag or container and this is the best part. Add in the remaining protein powder and close your container. Now shake, shake, shake! Shake until you feel like all pieces are sufficiently covered. Place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes just to set the chocolate and then enjoy.
