I created this Apple Crisp Chex Mix on vacation last summer in St. George. We were sharing a beautiful house with a great kitchen with my parents. My Mom, has Celiac disease and doesn't eat any gluten. Enter, Gluten Free Apple Crisp Chex Mix!
*Gluten Warning: Some people with Celiac Disease choose not to eat oats. They can be omitted from this recipe. Also, read all of your labels carefully to be sure that you are only using ingredients that are labeled gluten free.
We munched and munched on it while we played board games and everyone enjoyed it so much, the next day we went to the store and bought more ingredients so we could make it again! Check out the recipe and the short video to see how easy it is to make.
- 3 cups Vanilla Chex
- 3 cups Cinnamon Chex
- 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tsp corn syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 2 cups dried apples, chopped
- 1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- In a large, microwave safe bowl, mix both cereals and oatmeal.
- In a medium, microwave safe bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Microwave butter mixture for 1-2 minutes. (Exact time will vary based on your microwave and the temperature of the butter. Just microwave long enough to melt the butter.)
- Pour butter mixture into the cereal and oatmeal. Stir well until the cereal is completely coated.
- Microwave the cereal for a total of 3-4 minutes, stirring after each minute. (Be careful, it will be very hot.)
- Pour cereal onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
- Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle over the cereal.
- Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle the sliced almonds over the top.
- Let the mixture sit until the white chocolate is set (or pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes).
- Break it up into bite size pieces and store it in a Ziploc bag for up to 1 week.
- I have made this with dried apples (more chewy) and freeze-dried apples (more crunchy). I prefer the chewy dried apples. They add a different texture and go well with the crunchy cereal and almonds.
