We are going to make Chex mix this weekend (along with a lot of other goodies). I love Chex mix but it really isn't all that healthy. What can I put in it to make it better for me? I know I have to leave the candy out!

Have you ever tried making a savory batch? I used this recipe last year, and wow! It turned out amazing. I'll never go back to store-bought again. Instead of butter, I use a low-fat spread. Works like a charm, and it's super cheap to make for Christmas gifts.

What's chex mix? Looks like pretzel things, nuts and shredded wheat That cant be good on a diet surely? Not sure that you can get that chex in the UK. Would give it a go, but looks high in carbs.

I wouldn't say it's unhealthy. I usually go with the Rice Chex if I will be sharing. There's no gluten in that and I have a couple friends avoiding it. I've made it without Chex cereal. You can use Cheerios or any of the other low fat, low sugar cereals too.

Some add-ins are nuts, coconut, raisins, dried fruit, or carob chips. I just throw things in that seem to go well together. I take some in a little container to work sometimes. Like trail mix, it gives a little energy boost in the middle of the day as long as you don't sit and eat it all day long.

Oh, man. Carob chips and dried fruit would be amazing. I like this idea, Jeans! Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to make a trail mix batch this year.

It is good but it is addicting and it is either always too sweet or too salty when you buy it in the normal bags. I want to start making my own again, I had a great recipes years ago but I lost it. I might have to try the one you listed above out to see how the family likes it.
