Need a protein-packed and DELICIOUS snack that won't break your macros? As always, JamaRR Royster - aka @pancakegawd – has just the thing... Buff Buddies (similar to Muddy Buddies, but with our own special spin)! With the help of Buff Whey Fudge Brownie, each mouthwatering serving has 5 grams of protein, and they're so easy to make!
Protein-Packed Buff Buddies
MACROS (per serving):
Makes 8 servings (64g)
16g of Buff Whey Fudge Brownie
5 cups of Rice Chex cereal
128g of peanut-butter or cookie butter
128g of sugar free Hershey's chocolate chips
.25 cup of powdered sugar
Measure cereal and place in a large bowl, set aside.
Pour powdered sugar or powdered erythritol and protein powder into a 2-gallon resealable zip-lock bag.
Temper chocolate chips and peanut-butter in the microwave for 30s on high, then stir. Microwave one more time for 30 seconds, then 15 seconds, then 10 seconds.
Pour chocolate and peanut-butter mixture over cereal and toss until evenly coated.
Carefully pour coated cereal mixture into the bag with the powdered sugar and protein powder. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on parchment paper to cool completely. Make sure you let it cool for a while before putting it in a container, otherwise your mix will get soggy.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Keeping it in the fridge will keep it fresh and crunchy!
Chex is the traditional cereal used for Muddy Buddies, but you can always try different cereal options!
If you prefer to use powdered peanut butter for lower fat content, mix 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter (like PB2) with 2 Tablespoons almond milk or water and 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter.
Powdered erythritol makes this lower in sugar. I’ve used Swerve and it worked great.
