Hi all,

Has anyone come up with a gluten-free 'chex' mix type snack? Are corn and rice Crunch'Ems officially gluten-free? I bought a packet of the chex mix seasoning and it looks OK, has anyone used it?

Thanks,
Pam

I just made some party mix! I used the corn crunch ems. I cannot get rice ones right now. Apparently there is some manufacturing problem with the rice. So I only had corn cereal in the mix. :(

I used 8 cups cereal, 1 cup gluten-free pretzels (glutino), and 1 cup nuts. Place the dry ingredients in a ziploc bag. Melt 1/2 stick butter, 1 1/2 tsp season salt (McCormick), and 4 1/2 tsp worstchersire (sp?) sauce. Pour wet over dry. Shack bag. Place mixture in a microwave safe bowl and zap on high for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Cool and enjoy! :D

I made chex mix with the rice and corn crunch'ems and then also made people puppy chow with them!! MMMMMMMMMM good stuff. I used the recipe off of the chex website and just subbed in the health valley cereals and gluten free pretzles and such.

3/4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzels
1 cup garlic-flavor bite-size bagel chips or regular-size bagel chips, broken into 1-inch pieces
9 cups Cereal
6 tablespoons margarine or butter*
2 tablespoons LEA & PERRINSĀ® Worcestershire sauce

Heat oven to 250. Melt margarine in large roasting pan in oven. Stir in seasonings. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container. 12 cups snack.
*Do not use spread or tub products

Microwave Directions: Melt margarine in large microwavable bowl uncovered on High. Stir in seasonings. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 6 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

Important: Because microwaves cook differently, time is approximate.

1 serving(1/2 cup): 130 calories(70 calories from fat); 8 g fat(1.5g saturated); 0 mg cholesterol; 340 mg sodium; 14 g carbohydrate(1 g fiber); 2g protein.
