Gluten Free Puppy Chow Recipe

Puppy Chow is a long-time Kindergarten teacher recipe.  🙂  I haven’t made it since moving to Panama as imported cereals like Chex or Crispex are way too expensive!  However, I found this big bag of Brown Rice Puffed Cereal at Organica for $2.50.  Since we have a couple of children in our group that eat gluten free and this was shaped enough like dog food, I though it would be perfect for making gluten free puppy chow.  (This is a repost from our white dog fun, spring 2012.)

Here’s what we used for a little healthier/more frugal option:

  • 1/4 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 1/2 cups puffed rice cereal (or Gluten Free Chex/Crispix)
  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar (made in the Vita-mix)

Melt the chocolate chips over low heat (stovetop or microwave, you decide!).

Add the nut butter and stir until smooth.

Mix in the cereal, stirring it gently until well-coated.

Now for the fun part…

Put the powdered sugar in a bag, and dump in the cereal. Seal it…then shake, shake, SHAKE!!

Taaa  Daaa!!  Puppy Chow.

Of course, it tastes better if you eat it like a puppy too!
