How to Make Vegan Chex Mix
Important note: It was kindly brought to my attention that General Mill's Chex cereals in the U.S. contain D3 which is typically derived from lanolin (sheep's wool). Therefore it's not 100% vegan (as of this writing).
So if you are in the U.S. be sure to look for an alternative, vegan-friendly chex-like cereal for this recipe.

Savory Vegan Chex Mix
- 3 cups corn chex cereal
- 3 cups rice chex cereal
- 1 1/2 cup pretzels (GF if desired)
- 1 1/2 cup mixed nuts
- 6 Tbsp. vegan butter (I like Miyoko's brand)
- 1 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 3/4 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp. salt (more/less to taste)
- Preheat oven to 250°F (121°C).
- In a very large mixing bowl, add chex, pretzels, and nuts.
- Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. When melted, add tamari, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Stir. (Feel free to test the salt level by dipping one of the chex.)
- Immediately after stirring the butter mixture, pour it over the chex mix.
- Gently stir for 1-2 minutes to thoroughly combine.
- Place on a baking pan, and spread evenly.
- Bake for about 1 hour (or more if desired), stirring every 15 minutes.
- Let cool and store in an airtight container.

This sounds so good. What can i use in place of the vegan butter, I dont use oils. thanks
Chex isn't vegan because it contains vitamin D3 derived from lanolin (sheep's wool).

Hi Eloise! Thank you for sharing. D3 can be sneaky. I've added a note to find an alternative, vegan-friendly chex-like cereal. Thank you!
In Canada, to the best of my knowledge, Chex is vegan. There's no D3 added.
