Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Puppy Chow

Please tell me that I’m not the only one that’s addicted to 7-11 coffee. It’s a problem, I know–I’m dealing with it the best I know how (AKA, drinking it every single day of my life). But being an Exclusive Blend addict isn’t my only problem. Every time I walk into a 7-11 and head for their coffee bar ( yes, coffee bar, I needed to class it up a little) I am forced to walk past the snacks, which is impossible to avoid because they are EVERYWHERE. Every single day my eye is caught by one thing in particular, Muddy Buddies.

I decided today is the day that I make those delicious Muddy Buddies my own using my favorite peanut butter, a little chocolate and lots of protein powder!


This super simple recipe will only take five minutes of your time and requires absolutely NO BAKING!  Yay!



I used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup whey protein to coat my puppy chow and I can only imagine Gourmet Vanilla Flavor or Milk Chocolate would also be amazing. Get 30% off PEScience products using code PBCHOCO.
