Anyone Make gluten-free Home-Made Chex/party Mix?

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone - one of the snacks I miss most is Chex Mix.  Despite the high calories :-)

 

I'm sure it's easy to replicate, considering that most Chex is gluten-free, but has anyone got a good 'recipe' to share?  Hoping to make up a batch this weekend.

 

Thanks!

You can make most of these. Just sub gluten-free pretzels, don't use the wheat Chex, gluten-free soy sauce, etc

I be back in a few minutes with the way I make it

This is a combo of the Chex mix and Crispix mix original recipes.  You can either do it all in the microwave in a big bowl, or you can do it in a 9 x 13 pan in the oven.

 

Ingredients:

3 - 6 T butter or margarine

4 t - 2 T worcestershire sauce (make sure it's gluten-free).  I like more, so I go with the 2 T.

2 t lemon juice (skip if you don't have it)

garlic powder, onion powder, and/or seasoned salt to taste

7 - 9 cups of cereal (rice and corn Chex).  For the higher amount, use the 6 T of butter.

1 c pretzels

1 c nuts

 

By microwave: melt the butter in the big bowl, add the worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and seasonings.  Combine the dry ingredients in another bowl, because if you add them to the wet stuff while you measure them out, some of them will get soaked and some of them will stay dry.  Add the dry ingredients and immediately mix thoroughly - it will take a while to distribute the wet ingredients through all of that dry stuff and you want it to be as even as possible.  Microwave for 5 - 6 minutes, but it is essential to stir every minute or two or it will burn on the bottom.  It's done when you're not turning up wet pieces of cereal (or very few).

 

In the oven: put the pan in the oven with the butter, and let the butter melt while the oven preheats to 250.  Add the other wet and seasoning ingredients to the melted butter.  Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, then let it bake for 15 minutes.  Mix again, bake 15 min.  Mix again and bake again for 15 min.  By the end of this all of the wet cereal should be dry and crispy, if not, give it another stir and another 15 min.

 

Let it cool, transfer it to a bag or container, and hide it from your family.

I use a mixture of the following:

4 cups Rice Chex

4 cups Corn Chex

4 cups Whole O's (Nature's Path)

4 cups Pretzels (Glutino)

2 cups Mixed Nuts (I use store brand; check for gluten-free)

 

Melt a stick and a half of butter. Add 6  Tbspns Lea and Perrins, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/4 tsp garlic salt. Bake (I use the bottom of a turkey roaster) at 200 degrees for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

 

Put this in zip lock bags when it is thoroughly cool. It will keep a long time.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
