Delicious Banana Cream Puppy Chow

Sharing is caring!

Just wait until you try this Banana Cream Puppy Chow. It’s packed full of delicious banana flavor with the perfect crunch! I love puppy chow recipes so much and this is one of my favorite muddy buddy treats.

Using banana cream pudding mix is such a fun way to get that banana flavor! Combine that with powdered sugar and stir to coat, and you’ve got quite the sweet treat that everyone is going to love! Good thing it makes a large bowl to share!

Banana Cream Puppy Chow

The biggest tip to remember when making this simple puppy chow recipe is that you want to fold in everything until it’s mixed well. Once you add the mixture to the powdered sugar, you want to be certain that everyone gets coated evenly, too!

My boys love when I make puppy chow because it’s a snack that they can grab by the handful as they’re walking by. It’s a great snack to have on hand for dessert or a sweet afternoon treat.

How do you store puppy chow to keep it fresh?

The last thing that you want is a soggy puppy chow! The easiest way to store puppy chow for later is to store it in an airtight container with a lid.

This will keep the Chex cereal crunchy and trap in that sweet flavor, too.
