Grady’s Celiac Disease makes it difficult for snacking. So many foods that you can just buy off of a store shelf are, by their very nature, gluten free. It’s the processing and packaging processes that make certain foods unsafe for him to eat. Things processed on shared equipment aren’t always safe, so we very often have to make our own versions of things for him to eat, which is how this special Chex Mix was born.
We used gluten free cereals, gluten free pretzels, powdered sugar, and some Nestle peanut butter and chocolate chips for this ridiculously addictive snack. It’s loaded with sugar so it’s an occasional treat, but perfect for those parties we attend where Grady won’t have much to eat.
