Do you ever just avoid certain foods all together because you're certain your little one won't be able to eat it? I do this often. The other day I came across the original Chex Mix recipe and was pleasantly surprised that I could easily eliminate and substitute for her without compromising too much. Chex cereal is on sale everywhere right now and if you can get coupons (search on www.coupons.com), too.
Here's what I did for Chex Mix that was dairy-free and peanut-free.
3 Tbsp dairy-free margarine (I use Earth's Balance)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp seasoned salt (see copycat recipe here)
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cup corn chex
1 1/2 cup rice chex
1 1/2 cup wheat chex (omit if gluten free and add more corn and rice)
1 cup bite-size pretzels (We eat Rold Gold)
1. Melt margarine in large roaster or pan in oven at 250 degrees.
2. Add spices and Worcestershire sauce. Mix together.
3. Add in cereal and pretzels.
4. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
** So basically I skipped the peanuts and bagel chips, and substituted dairy-free margarine.**
