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.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
