You will love this great Gluten-free Chex Mix recipe made with Rice and Corn Chex, Gluten-free pretzels, and other goodies. If you’re after a salty. crunchy. delicious treat, this Gluten Free Snack Mix is the best!
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.
Is Chex Mix gluten free?
Packaged Chex Mix snacks are not gluten free, and therefore should be avoided by people who have dietary issue with gluten. It’s best to stick with products clearly labeled as gluten-free or make your own gluten free Chex mix at home.
How to Make Gluten Free Chex Mix
I love making gluten free chex recipes! It’s really very easy to make and you can add some of your favorite ingredients, like pistachios or gluten-free trail mix to the ingredients too!
Let’s get started.
Step One: GF Homemade Sauce
First, place the vegan butter in a large pyrex measuring cup. Place in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds, until melted. Then add the Bragg, miso paste, garlic and onion powder. Stir to combine.
Note: You can use tamari in place of Bragg because both are gluten free seasonings.
Step Two: Combine Snack Mix
In a large bowl combine the cereal, pretzels, and nuts. Stir to mix. Here’s where you can add your favorite snack foods to this gluten free chex party mix, like almonds, pumpkin seeds and more.
Then, pour the butter mixture over the chex mix. Stir immediately and thoroughly until all the pieces are evenly coated. Transfer coated chex to roasting pan.
Place the roasting pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, then stir to distribute the seasoned coating across all the pieces. Repeat this, stirring every 15 minutes until the mix has baked for an hour.
Cool before serving.
Storing Chex Gluten Free Mix
Once the gluten free chex cereal mix has cooled, transfer to an airtight container. It will keep up to 7 – 10 days at room temperature. This Gluten free trail mix recipe can be frozen too. Transfer to a freezer bag and freeze up to 2 – 3 months.
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!
