Gluten Free Snack Mix

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

I think my quest for gluten free snack options is well documented! When we took a road trip to the mountains last week, I was packing snacks for the drive and feeling frustrated by the lack of variety for Einstein (our son on a gluten free diet) so I decided to make up a fun snack mix.

Gluten Free Snack Mix perfect for bringing on the roadThis was simple to make but very popular with my kids. I threw everything into a bowl, gave it a quick mix and then divided it into little containers for the road. Okay, well, not all of it made it into the little containers. The kids saw me making it and convinced me to let them snack from the bowl first!

Other ideas of what you could include:

  • almonds or other tree nuts
  • mini marshmallows
  • chocolate chips
  • dried fruit
  • M+Ms
  • popcorn
  • sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • Glutino pretzels
  • coconut flakes

My kids loved the mix. I liked that it was something a bit more exciting than a gluten free granola bar and easily portable. Of course, if you don’t have small containers, you could also send it in resealable sandwich or snack sized bags. This gluten free snack mix would be great for sending in school lunches.
