Paleo snack mix: Make a paleo version of your favorite holiday snack mix!

Chex Mix is the one snack I cannot stop eating. I would probably weigh 10 pounds less if had never eaten Chex Mix in my life.

But I dabble in paleo – and I know many of you follow paleo, Whole30 or grain-free diets. And Chex Mix is definitely not paleo-friendly.

The fix? Find a paleo-friendly alternative to Chex Mix.

A Healthier Snack Mix: Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free

Around Christmastime, there is always a delicious but unhealthy snack sitting within arm’s length, ready to be eaten.

This is the year to find healthier alternatives to your favorite foods.

If you’re a Chex Mix addict and looking for a grain-free alternative, give this recipe a try!

It’s delicious and just as addictive.

But it’s more satiating than traditional Chex Mix. Again, I can’t stop eating Chex Mix. But after a couple handfuls of this paleo snack mix, I’m good.

But that’s not because it’s not as delicious.

It’s probably because it’s full of nourishing whole foods, like plantain chips, nuts, and coconut!
