This Coconut Oil Chex Mix is easy and packed with flavor. A couple changes takes this classic snack mix and turns it gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. You will love it!
Chex Mix is such a popular snack food! Whether you make it yourself or buy it from the store- chances are you’ve had it at some point in your life. Homemade is definitely my favorite though and this coconut oil version is the best!
I love how easy this Chex Mix is to make! 5 minutes prep time, then an hour in the oven which is mostly hands off. The result is a huge tray of snack mix that everyone will enjoy!
One important part of this recipe is to stir it every 15 minutes. This ensures all the pieces get cooked evenly and there are no burned Chex. I know there are recipes that call for the microwave and can be made in under 10 minutes, but I don’t think they are even close as good as the traditional oven method. This is how I have always done it and the results are always great. And an added bonus- your house will smell amazing while it’s cooking. It’s one of the best parts in my opinion.
The original calls for Worcestershire sauce, but I decided I wanted to use Coconut Aminos. I always have a bottle on hand and love the flavor it adds to everything. If you’re not familiar with coconut aminos, it is a savory sauce that is slightly sweeter and less salty than soy sauce. You can find it at any health food store by the soy sauce or on Amazon. It works so great in this recipe- it balances perfectly with the season salt and garlic and onion. It is so delicious! I included a picture so you know what to look for. There are the rest of the ingredients for the “sauce” mixture as well.
If you like the original chex mix, then you will love this version! Crunchy, salty, and irresistible!
I bet you can’t just have one handful! 🙂
