Gluten-Free Snack Mix

Gluten-free Snack Mix made with Rice and Corn Chex, Gluten-free pretzels, and other goodies. Salty. Crunchy. Delicious.

Gluten-free Snack Mix, a light, healthy, crunchy, and delicious snack!


I watched with more than a little envy as my husband snacked on some Chex Mix. I snuck around when he wasn’t looking and picked away at some of the Rice and Corn Chex pieces.


But try as I may to be stealthy, I was found out. Believe it or not, some people don’t like it when other’s pick at the bag. Especially when that bag of Chex Mix was one of their stocking stuffers. Just because you received it as a present…does that mean you can be picky about how other people eat from the bag?

So I decided to make my own.

When you make your own, you only include the ingredients you like the most. No melba. No wheat. No picking…thank you very much!

Now the real question is whether I’ll let my honey pick at this batch of gluten-free goodness. Oh, there’s not much to think about there. Not really. I’m not too particular about those kinds of things. He’s welcome to pick away. Besides, I can always make more!

  1. Heat your oven to 250F.
