Gluten Free Chex Mix Recipe - Homemade Chex Mix (2)

We LOVE Chex Mix at our house! We make several big batches of this Chex mix recipe at Christmas every yearand each time it goes…quickly! We do leave out the nuts because no one in our family like nuts but mom and me.

This homemade Chex mix is best when it is baked in the oven.There is just something about baking that really brings out the flavor in our opinion.

If you use generic ingredients or a different brand than I’ve included,you should read the ingredients if you’re trying to keep it gluten free.

Chex Mix Tips:

Substitutions: You can mix and match to suit your taste—just use a total of 9 cups of cereal. Honey Nut Cheerios adds a touch of sweetness. You can add more pretzels or bagel chips and, of course, if you aren’t gluten free, use any “regular” items.

Other Add Ins For Homemade Chex Mix:

  • oyster crackers
  • cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its)
  • cashews
  • almonds
  • sunflower seeds

This easy homemade gluten free Chex mix recipe is modified from the Chex mix recipe in volume 2 of our cookbook. We substituted the gluten ingredients for ones not containing gluten.
