There's plenty of freedom to play with this recipe so you can easily change it up each time you need some easy on-the-go snacks. This snack mix is made with chex squares, popcorn, and roasted peanuts. Try adding some pretzels for a little more crunch! This version is spiced up with garlic, chili powder, and parmesan cheese. You can easily remove or add spices depending on preferences. Try adding a hint of lime juice to add a little zest, or a hint of onion powder. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!


  • 8 cups Gluten Free Rice Chex Cereal
  • 1 bag (3 oz) Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free popcorn, popped
  • 1/4 cup Dry-Roasted Peanuts
  • 3 tablespoons Conola or Vegetable Oil
  • 1/3 cup Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

A Few Tips

I will admit, I had to go on a bit of a treasure hunt to find the popcorn and parmesan cheese that are both gluten free and dairy free. I found them from my local sprouts, however, I did have to try a few different sprouts before I found the parmesan cheese. Honestly, the snack mix tastes just as good without it, so don't stress about it if you can't find it!

I did not have a bowl large enough to comfortably mix the ingredients, so I just kept transferring/tossing the ingredients from the biggest bowl I could find and the large roasting pan. Whatever works to get it all evenly coated!

  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees
  2. In a VERY LARGE bowl, mix cereal, popcorn, and peanuts. Drizzle with oil and toss/mix until evenly coated.
  3. Once the mix is coated with oil, mix in the remaining ingredients. Spread evenly in a large, un-greased roasting pan.
  4. Back uncovered 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Bake uncovered for an additional 7-8 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.

I originally found and modified this recipe from the Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Cook book. I highly suggest it! It is very easy to substitute some of the ingredients for dairy-free options.
