Gluten Free Snack Mix Recipes

I love to have snack mix sitting in bowls when my husband’s friends are over to watch a game. It’s easy, it’s inexpensive, and everyone likes it. It’s incredibly versatile too. Chances are, you have the fixings in your pantry right now.

Snack mix is also really useful for road trips, hiking trips, or anytime you’ll be away from the house. For some reason, just being in the car seems to trigger my kids’ hunger, even if they just ate. It’s sort of like when they were toddlers and I could count on them needing to use the restroom every single time we went into a store.
