Rescue Puppy Chow Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 5 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes
8 cups vegan waffle square cereal (such as Chex, using a gluten-free variety if necessary)
1 cup vegan chocolate chips (or chunks)
½ cup unsalted, unsweetened, smooth natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons vegan butter (soy-free if necessary)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup powdered sugar (or xylitol)
1Pour the cereal into a very large bowl. Set aside.
2Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl on top of a pot of boiling water, stirring frequently, until smooth.
3Stir in the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt. Stir until combined and completely melted and smooth.
4Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal. Stir until combined.
5Add the powdered sugar and toss until fully coated.
6Spread out the mixture on a baking sheet to cool completely.
7Divide among gift bags or jars, or place in an airtight container. You can refrigerate it, or store it at room temperature, where it will keep for 5 to 7 days.
8For the peanut butter fanatics in the family, try switching out the waffle cereal with puffed peanut butter cereal (such as Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins).

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
