Anyone Make gluten-free Home-Made Chex/party Mix?
0

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 one of the original recipes from the late 60's early 70's adapted for gluten-free.

 

Patio Mix

 

 

Preheat oven to 200F

 

3 tbsp cooking oil

1 tbsp peanut butter

 

Microwave and mix well.

 

Add to PB mixture:

¼ Teasp garlic salt

¼ teasp salt

 

In a 9x13 pan or a baking sheet with sides, mix:

3 cups Rice Chex

3 Cups Corn Chex

½ can of salted peanuts

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.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      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.
