Puppy chow...you know, those powder sugar coated Rice Chex you had when you were a kid. Don't you miss them? The fitness lifestyle is not for everyone, but it doesn't mean it has to be boring when it comes to your food!
Grenade makes a product that can turn almost any snack you loved before this lifestyle, into a snack for this lifestyle. Grenade's Carb Killa Protein Spreads are not only delicious, they are good for you too. They come in a variety of flavors including Hazel Nutter, Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate Cookie. For our Protein Puppy Chow recipe, we elected to go with the Hazel Nutter variation.
Do you love the taste of Nutella? It's delicious. The hazelnut flavor...oh I can taste it now. BUT, the problem with Nutella is that it contains too much junk. Get all the flavor of Nutella but not the junk with Grenade's Hazel Nutter Carb Killa Protein Spread.
There's several key differences to our recipe of Puppy Chow than the one you're used too. First, we used dark chocolate chips versus the semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips. These are better overall in terms of nutrition and also hearth-healthy with natural theobromine. Instead of plain peanut butter or Nutella, we used Grenade's Carb Killa Protein Spread which has a higher content of protein with all the great taste of Nutella. We also went with just a plain version of rice cereal. Others use honey variations or corn, but straight rice cereal is your best bet. Finally, instead of powdered sugar, which will spike your insulin levels, we coated our Puppy Chow in protein powder. You can choose what brand and what flavor of protein powder you want to use.
Put a stop to those cravings for sweets and desserts. Look no further than our Protein Puppy Chow featuring Grenade's Carb Killa Protein Spread. This recipe is easy-to-make, quick and better-for-you.
