I have been on a quest to make a Paleo Captain Crunch for a year and well, I’m coming up empty ya’ll.  The dang recipe is alluding me so I’m taking a break from it and going to work on croissants.

Anyhow, I have managed to make a few spin off recipes and this Paleo Chex Cereal is one of them.

Sometimes the hardest part of the recipe is figuring out what the heck to name it.  On my first bite, it tasted like Honey Bunches of Oats.  Then it thought it was like Honey Grahams cereal.

After we were close to eating the entire batch, I thought of Chex and Mr. Bejelly and I finally agreed on the name.

Now this cereal is not thin and light.  This is hardier and will be hard to stop eating.


We tore through this like the Little on a soup binge and my kiddo can eat a gallon of soup before giving up (his belly looks like a little Buddha also which is hilarious)

I made this, and it didn't roll out easily, it just stuck to the parchment. Than I scored it, and it all cut cooked together anyways. I followed recipe exact...

Is there another nut you would recommend to replace the cashews? I'm allergic but would love to try this!
