Snack Mix in under 5 minutes

Satisfy your cravings with this easy snack mix.

 I just love it when a large company comes out with something just for us Celiacs!  Hurray! Now we can make any gluten free snack mix recipes for ourselves and finally be able to provide some fun gluten free snacks that are easy to make and  everyone can enjoy! That’s great news!

  Here are some recipes I found in different places so I thought I would just put them together for you!

Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Snack Mix

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups Chex® Chocolate cereal
  • 2 cups Chex® Honey and Nut cereal
  • 4 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/4 cup butter or dairy free margarine or coconut oil (whichever you wish)

 In a small bowl combine the sugar and the cinnamon. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the cereals and the popcorn.

 In a silicone 1 cup measuring cup, microwave the butter on high or until melted, between 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the butter over the cereal mix and stir to coat. Microwave on high, stirring after 1 minute. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture over the cereal and stir.

Then sprinkle on the rest of the sugar mix and stir again. Microwave another minute on high. Spread out on parchment lined baking sheets and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container. Makes 8 cups

Honey Nut Raisin Chex® Mix

  • 6 cups Honey Nut Chex® cereal
  • 1 cup Rice Chex® cereal
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp gluten free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

 In a large microwave bowl, combine the cereals together. In a 2 cup silicone measuring cup, microwave the butter on high until melted, about 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, cream cheese and cinnamon. Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir after every 30 seconds until smooth. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour it over the cereal and stir to coat. Microwave the cereal on high for 5 minutes, stirring every minute. When the 5 minutes is up, stir in the raisins and the cranberries. Microwave one more minute. Spread out on parchment lined baking sheets to cool. Store in an airtight container. Makes 8 cups 

These make a wonderful snack for after school. Add different dried fruits or nuts to the ones you and your family like. I’m a dried cranberry girl myself. I’ll eat them right out of the bag. That and crystalized ginger. Yum!

Happy snacking!

Ps… These are good Party snacks too. Place in small plastic bags and tie up with curling ribbon. Or fill paper popcorn bags and have a movie night. One outside would be really fun. Just bring lots of bug spray 🙂
