Make crunchy, healthy Vegan Chex Mix with your favorite snack foods for a twist on a nostalgic party food with health benefits!
Who doesn’t love Chex Mix? It’s salty, crunchy, and everyone has a favorite item. But sadly, what makes it taste so good also makes Chex Mix not the healthiest option. It’s full of refined grains, sugar, and tons of sodium. That’s why I love to make my own healthy Chex mix that’s just as addicting, without the ultra-processed stuff. Plus, my version is fully vegan and gluten-free.
Ingredients for Homemade Gluten-Free Chex Mix
Here’s what you need to make your own vegan Chex Mix:
RiceChex. You can use unflavored Rice Chex, or any crunchy gluten-free cereal you like.
Pretzels. Use your favorite miniature gluten-free pretzels.
Popcorn. I use vegan cheese-flavored popcorn, but any kind you like will work.
Cheese snacks. These add major savory flavor. I like the nacho cheese-flavored Sun Poppers.
Peanuts. you can use regular unsalted, unroasted nuts because you’ll be roasting them yourself!
Spices. Season your peanuts with smoked paprika and garlic powder to amp up the flavor.
If you don’t have all of these ingredients on hand, here are some swaps to make your own Chex Mix:
You can use almonds, cashews, or pumpkin seeds instead of peanuts. The pumpkin seeds make a great nut-free swap.
Use any kind of cereal you like. I don’t recommend anything that’s too sweet, though.
Swap out pretzels for gluten-free croutons.
Use any sturdy chip, such as tortilla or pita chips.
