Allergen Friendly Puppy Chow

We're you even raised in the midwest if puppy chow wasn't one of the main food groups in your household? I gotta tell you, I totally forgot about this addicting snack as an adult. But a couple of weeks ago Evie had her Valentine's day party at school and as with any party I always try to brainstorm a tasty, dairy free snack to make. It's harder than you think, so much of what we eat has dairy in it. So shout out to all my mamas with kids who have food allergies, because I feel your pain. Anyway, I was swamped with a bunch of other stuff on my to do list and didn't really have the time to bake something. I saw some Chex cereal at the store and the memories of puppy chow came flooding back to me. Sweet, easy, and perfect bite size for a class of toddlers. However, not only did I need to do some tweaking to make it dairy free, but there's also a kid in Evie's class allergic to peanut butter so I now had to do peanut free as well. It was soooo tasty. Did i mention it's also gluten free? Follow below for this easy and fun recipe!

Puppy Chow

| Total Prep Time: 20 minutes


-3/4 Cup of soy butter (or seed butter)

-6 cups of rice chex cereal 

-1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar 

| What to do: 

1. start by putting the chocolate chips and soy butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute stopping at 30 seconds to stir it. 

2. Once done stir the mixture well to make sure all the chocolate chips are melted. 

3. In a large mixing bowl mix 3 cups of the rice chex with half of the chocolate chip-soy butter mix using a silicone spatula. 

4. Once the rice chex is evenly coated, mix in the remaining 3 cups of cereal and chocolate-soy butter mixture until evenly coated. 

5. Put the bowl in the fridge for about 5 minutes to let the spread on the rice check thicken up just a bit. 

6. Take out another large mixing bowl and pour some of the chex in with a little bit of your powdered sugar until the chex pieces no longer stick together. Add a little but more of the chex and powdered sugar repeating the process. Continue to do this until all of the chex is evenly coated with the powdered sugar. 

7. Store in an airtight food storage container and enjoy!
