Healthy Fiber Muddy Buddies

Okay, when I decided to go clean/natural, one of the first things I had to toss were my beloved muddy buddies.  LOVE those things.  However, when I saw partially hydrogenated oils on the ingredient list (aka trans fats), I knew they had to go.  I figured if I made some myself with corn chex, at least they would be BETTER.  So...I started hunting for recipes.  I found one that I adapted slightly and the final product was pretty good, fiber packed, and looked like muddy buddies!  They still aren't "clean", but they are much better! (And I'm not going for a 100% score on natural eating. Just 90% or so) ;-D.

  • 2 cups Fiber One 80 calorie honey square cereal
  • 2 tbsp PB2 (powdered peanut butter.  LOVE this stuff), prepared 
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1.5 squares Bakers Chocolate/almond bark (feel free to use organic chocolate, but I don't view it as worth the money.)
  • 1 pkg sugar-free vanilla pudding mix
  • (Optional) 2 tbsp powdered sugar
1. Melt the margarine, pb2, and Chocolate Almond Bark in the microwave (microwave safe bowl), for 30 seconds at a time on medium power, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
2. After melted, add the Fiber One Honey Squares to the bowl and stir with a rubber scraper until cereal is covered. 
3. Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
4. After the mixture has hardened pour it into a large ziplock bag, and add the box of pudding mix and shake gently.  (This is where you can add the extra 2 Tbsp of powdered sugar to the bag, it just makes it a little sweeter).
