Low carb, Paleo puppy chow that tastes just as addictive as the classic recipe, but is actually healthy!  Perfect for a grain free, dairy free sweet treat.


  • 3 + 1/2 cups Paleo cereal*
  • 5 oz dark chocolate (I used 88% dark)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4-1/2 cup powdered monk fruit**


  1. Pour the cereal into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small sauce pan over low heat. Once the chocolate is fully melted, turn off the stove top and mix in the almond butter and vanilla.
  3. Pour the chocolate-almond butter mixture over the cereal. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until the cereal is fully coated.
  4. Place the cereal in the fridge for 10 minutes***
  5. Remove the chocolate cereal from the fridge and pour it in a large baggie. Add the powdered sugar (just 1/4 cup to start) and shake the bag, coating the cereal. If necessary, add more powdered sugar.
  6. Store in a sealed, air-tight container or baggie.


*Any cereal will work, but the best Paleo cereal is from Lovebird.  Use the code "bakeitpaleo" for a discount on any purchase

**The best low carb option is powdered monk fruit.  Another Paleo (not low carb) option is to make your own powdered sugar from coconut sugar and tapioca flour.

***This step is important if you don't want to add a ton of powdered sugar. As, letting the chocolate harden a little will make it so that the powdered sugar doesn't melt into the chocolate. Be sure to set your timer!
