Gluten Free Slow Cooker Chex Mix

This is one of those things that always shows up at the office I work in around Christmas. Surprisingly, it's also one of the things I have never made before, despite loving it. So I found this great recipe that can be made in the slow cooker and adapted it to be gluten free. This is great to make while your oven is tied up baking cookies and treats! 

Gluten Free Slow Cooker Chex Mix
  • 9 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups gluten free pretzels
  • 1 cup gluten free O shaped cereal (I used Nature's path whole O's)
  • 2 cups gluten free bagel chips
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/3 cup (6 Tablespoons) butter, melted and hot
  • 1 Tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 cup gluten free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Add both types of cereal, pretzels, bagel chips and peanuts to the bowl of a slow cooker.In a separate bowl, whisk together butter and seasoning salt until the salt is dissolved.  Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until combined.Drizzle the sauce evenly over the top of the cereal mixture.  Toss for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is evenly combined.

Cover and slow cook on low for 3 hours, stirring at the 1 hour, 2 hour and 2.5 hour marks so that the mixture does not burn.  If your slow cooker does not have a tiny hole in it to let the air escape, it may collect too much condensation which could make the Chex Mix too soggy. You can place a towel underneath the lid of the slow cooker to collect the condensation. Then spread the mixture out onto a few baking sheets or parchment paper in an even layer until it cools to room temperature.  Serve, or store in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks. Enjoy!
