Take the traditional Puppy Chow and Fall it up a bit with this PUMPKIN Puppy Chow!
We all know Pumpkin and Fall go together like Minnie and Mickey. It’s a match made in heaven! I was brainstorming a new Fall recipe to share with you that wasn’t a typical pumpkin recipe. Pumpkin waffles and pancakes are delicious, don’t get me wrong, I just wanted to change it up a bit which is why this pumpkin puppy chow was created.
After 3 batches of puppy chow, I finally came up with the winning recipe. And by the way, I am not mad it took me 3 rounds since now I have a plethora of puppy chow 😉
My boyfriend is allergic to all nuts and has NEVER tried puppy chow before, which is why this recipe is made with soy nut butter. (I used the WOW butter). I figured he’s 27 and never tried puppy chow I must make it with soy butter! However, it’s traditionally made with peanut butter, so whatever you choose with this recipe it will still be delicious.
Whether you’re going to a party or really just craving chocolate + pumpkin – you’ve gotta try this recipe! Hope you enjoy!
