Mission: Gluten-Free Chex

Most of the gluten-free/Celiac community is aware by now that General Mills is an amazing company and is modifying it’s current ingredients to make some other Chex cereals gluten-free.  As of June 1, 2009, the following flavors should all be gluten-free:

Strawberry

Rice

Corn

Honey Nut

Cinnamon

Chocolate

I have been lucky in that I have been able to find the Strawberry, Rice, Honey Nut and just Monday, the CORN!  My local Wal-Mart finally had the Corn Chex that said “Gluten-free” right on the front!  Now, must find the Chocolate & Cinnamon.  Wow, can you imagine the Chex Mix that I am going to make once I get all of these together??  I love cereal and have a bowl a day for snack usually.  I never can decide what kind, so I mix 3 or 4 kinds together.  Usually it is 1 or 2 different Chex cereals, Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise and Envirokidz Leapin’ Lemurs.  YUM! Sometimes I mix in a bit of vanilla yogurt, sometimes I eat just dry with my hands like a Chex Mix.  I have been known to toss in some Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles when feeling a little frisky!  ;)

  1. I found the honey nut Chex at Wal-Mart. They’re sooooooooooo good. I can’t believe it!

    Also, check out my friend’s blog for today. She makes these cookies (not GF) but maybe we can come up with a way to GF them. robinrane.wordpress.com They look incredible. You use one cup of dough per cookie!

    • Julie,

      That is one BIG cookie! Holy moley! It looks like it would be fairly easy to convert. Just use 2.5 cups GF flour mix and then add 2 tsp xanthan or guar gum or 1 tsp of each. I may give these a try and soon!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I hope you try them. If you go first, I’ll go second. I just wonder if the flour consistency will be okay. I’ve made Pamela’s chocolate chip cookies and that’s about it. They were decent. But if we could make something similar to these–wow!

  3. What the heck. i’m going to try them right now….i’ll let you know how they turn out.
