This easy recipe gets all the same flavours as original chex mix without the Worcestershire sauce (which contains fish)! Kid-friendly, perfect for parties. 

Course: Snack
Cuisine: American, Canadian
Servings: 18 servings (makes about 9.5 cups, so a little over 1/2 cup serving each)
Author: Sam Turnbull • It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken
Ingredients
For the seasoning:
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (such as Earth Balance)
For the chex mix:
  • 4 cups Chex* or similar cereal (see notes)
  • 2 cups Cheerios or similar cereal
  • 2 cup mini pretzels
  • 3/4 cup roasted almonds
  • 3/4 cup roasted cashews
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 250F (130C).

  2. Add all the seasoning ingredients to a small pot and melt over medium heat.

  3. Add the cereals, pretzels, and nuts to a large bowl. Pour the melted seasoning sauce over the chex mixture while stirring to evenly coat. Spread the mixture onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes until the mix has crisped up and become evenly golden. Let cool before serving or storing in an air-tight container.

Recipe Notes

In Canada, Chex cereals do not contain vitamin D3, but it has been brought to my attention that in the US Chex cereals do contain vitamin D3. D3 is usually made from lanolin and therefore is not vegan. So if you are in the US, look for a similar cereal that is vegan-friendly.
