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.

    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
