I don't know about the Chex mix, but instead of butter, why not use a dairy-free margarine (if he can have soy). If you google you'll get a few brands, but I know Fleischmann's UNsalted is casein-free.

We use Health Valley's Corn and Rice Crunch'ems for "chex" mix. Can't tell the difference. Instead of butter, I use oil - olive, safflower, canola or grapeseed. It works just fine in the recipe.

Liz,

Could you give me an idea of proportions? I usually am good about improvising, but this is exactly the type of thing that makes me nervous-- I don't want the cereal to get soggy! :P

Could you post or pm your recipe? I'd soooo appreciate it!

Hi!

I'm so glad you asked b/c I make a mix that my whole family just loves.

1 bag of PerkyOs

2 C of nuts

1 C of sesame seeds

Raisins (optional)

Chocolate chips (optional)

1/3 c olive oil

2 T sugar

2 T curry powder

2 t ground ginger

salt

Preheat oven to 350F. In large mixing bowl combine PerkyOs, nuts, and sesame seeds. You really can put this in any proportion that you like...I just throw handfuls at will. In a small measuring cup, add 1/3 c of oil (you can use whatever you can tolerate...canola, vegetable, olive), heaping measurements of curry powder, ginger, sugar, salt. Stir with fork and pour over dry mixture. Fold well to thoroughly coat dry mixture. Spread mixture onto baking pan and bake for 20 minutes.

After toasting, let cool to room temperature, store in airtight container, and add raisins, chocolate chips if you wish. You can adjust the spices to fit your taste and even add a dash of red cayenne pepper to heat it up.

I also use this mixture on air popped popcorn (I reduce the portion) and it's delicious. My husband loves it and he can't stand the taste of untoasted PerkyOs...must be nice to have other options. :lol:

Enjoy!
