    Ways to modify this sweet chex mix recipe

    • If you want to make a gluten-free version, there are lots of different gluten-free chex options. Just make sure to check the label on the box!
    • The nuts add a great salted touch, but if you’d like to leave them out, you easily can. You could incorporate some pretzel pieces instead.
    • Try adding some mini chocolate chips to add a hint of chocolate.
    • Peanut butter would taste great added in this sweet chex mix recipe too. I’d start with adding 1/4 cup and then add more to taste as needed.
    • If you’re not a huge fan of coconut, you can omit it. I’d recommend adding some dried cranberries (or dried fruit of choice) to still give it some sweetness.
