One very fond memory I have of growing up in Oklahoma during the fall was the party mix my Dad used to make. He would make it on the weekends to eat while watching football games.

It slow baked in the oven and the house smelled amazing! He would lay it out to cool and I would sneak my teeny little hands up on the counter to grab a bite! 😉

Gluten Free Taco Party Mix

I decided to re-create this snack mix, the gluten free way, with a little taco seasoned twist!

I used Nature’s Path Envirokidz Gorilla Munch as the base for my mix. It’s a delicious cereal that’s gluten free and filled with whole grains. This recipe incorporates an entire box of the cereal which packs in 90 grams of whole grains!

I tried using tongs at first, but ended up using my hands to toss everything together to make sure it was coated evenly.

Go ahead, get in there and get your hands dirty!

Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
