What You Need For This Recipe:

4 cups Chex cereal 
Ancient Nutrition chocolate collagen 
Peanut butter 
Chocolate chips 
Powdered sugar 
Candy corn 

Why I Add Collagen:

I love to add collagen into my recipes because it gives them more protein. Also I love the benefits I personally see from adding collagen into my diet. I think adding it in has helped with my joint health as well as my hair/skin. But everyone is different and sees different results. Always do what works best for you and remember that I’m not a doctor.

Not only do I like adding it to easy desserts like this, I add collagen daily to my coffee. It adds 9 grams of protein and only 45 calories. I like to add a flavored one because it’s a healthier alternative to creamer in your coffee. Plus it dissolves right in and isn’t messy like adding protein into your coffee. Add a little unsweetened almond milk and it’s the perfect way to start the day!

What Collagen I Use:

I love this Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen. All of the products they make are incredibly high quality, ethically sourced. Whenever I’m buying animal protein of any kind, that’s always what I look for. None of their collagens have an artificial flavor taste at all, which is important to me as well. Also it isn’t chalky like some protein powder can be. You can find the collagen I used here. Every product they make is not only delicious but also the best quality around!
