Perfectly Nutty Protein Chow - gluten free

Who doesn't love "monkey munch & puppy chow?"

My daughter came up with a similar snack mix that is lower in fat and higher in protein, but not short on flavor.

Rich chocolate with a hint of peanut butter...handful after handful.
Instead of powdered sugar, the outside is coated in her favorite protein shake powder and PB2, a powdered peanut butter product. Genius!

Perfectly Nutty Protein Chow
1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (12.8 oz) box Chocolate Chex Cereal
1 scoop chocolate vegan protein mix. We used Shakology. I also like Orgain Organic Protein.

In a medium sauce pan heat coconut oil, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. Heat until melted and completely mixed.
Add box of chex cereal and mix until all squares are coated. Dump coated squares into a large gallon sized bag. Combine Shakology(or other chocolate protein powder) and PB2, then add to bag with cereal. Shake it around until cereal squares are completely dusted.

Serve it up!

Store leftovers in an air tight container or zip lock bag.
