Chocolate Caramel Brownie Shakeology Muddy Buddy ingredients


  • If you don’t have peanut butter, you can swap ¼ cup (25 g) peanut butter powder and 2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. water (mix together before melting with chocolate chips). To keep the same nutritional profile, divide into 6 servings instead of 8.
  • Feel free to substitute more cereal instead of pretzels to increase the amount of fiber. This recipe, although it contains “silly carbs” and “accessory ingredients,” fits the criteria for a packaged FFC side. Always remember to track it to make sure it’s working for you.
  • You can make this recipe nut-free by substituting sunflower butter for the peanut butter and sunflower seeds for the peanuts.
