Healthy Chex Mix!
My son has been bugging to make Chex Mix so I told him we’d do a healthier version. So many people think chex mixes from stores are just cereal so they are healthy. Far from the truth. The cereals normally used are rice, corn and wheat Chex. Those all contain high fructose corn syrup, chemical preservatives and are gmo. The peanuts are usually ones fried in corn or soybean oil which are highly gmo and the butter used is full of hormones and antibiotics and brown sugar used in sweet Chex Mix is just white processed sugar with molasses added to make it brown. Yuk! When you learn how to read ingredients and KNOW what’s in each food you put in your and your children’s bodies, you will begin to take control of your health. So we used healthier ingredients- non gmo puffs and O cereal, raw peanuts, organic spelt pretzels, ghee, coconut nectar, vanilla and cinnamon. The kids and husband loved it!
3 cups of Organic O’s Cereal
3 cups of Barbara’s Puffs Cereal
2 cups raw peanuts
1 tbsp coconut nectar
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large sheet pan. Spread evenly, use two pans if necessary. In a saucepan heat the ghee and coconut nectar till melted. Pour ghee mix over the cereal and make sure all is coated. Bake on 300 for 15 minutes. Take out and stir around. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and let it cool. Enjoy!
