Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Vegan cereal: Be sure to find a vegan-friendly Chex-style cereal.
For gluten-free: Use GF pretzels and GF tamari.
