Chex Mix

Super easy homemade Chex Mix that is made gluten-free! Makes the best snack mix and trust me, it is a crowd pleaser!

Gluten-free Chex Mix

Isn't Chex Mix so tasty? The homemade version is so easy and tastier than store-bought. It is gluten-free by using gluten-free corn and rice Chex, gluten-free pretzels and gluten-free Worcestershire sauce.

I added peanuts and cashews to make it full of healthy fats and protein and to make this snack a little more filling. If you want to keep it on the lower calorie side, you can reduce the amount of nuts you use.  Make this for a party or any time! Parties are so much fun- especially for the food. This makes a great snack to enjoy through the week as well. This is definitely a treat type of food and makes a really fun movie night snack. 

You can make homemade Chex mix using whatever flavors you want such as buffalo Chex mix or ranch Chex mix using ranch seasoning. When your Chex mix is in the oven, watch it carefully so it doesn't burn. Cooking it at a low temperature helps it not burn but to get nice and crispy.

What ingredients do you need for gluten-free Chex mix?

-A couple kinds of Chex- corn and rice work well to keep it gluten-free. If you can tolerate gluten, you can use wheat Chex if you want. 

-Nuts- peanuts, cashews, almonds and pecans work really well

-Flavors- butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt, smoked paprika. Garlic powder and onion powder adds a lot of flavor.

-Pretzels- I used gluten-free pretzels to keep this dish gluten-free but you can use regular if you can tolerate gluten.

  1. I never ate Chex Mix as a child! So I made it and didn't get it. What is the reason for the fuss? It's not that good.
