Several times this year, I’ve been asked for ideas for a fun gluten-free snack mix for people to bring to pre-school, sports, or school. After some brainstorming and trying out different combinations, this is the fun no-bake gluten-free  snack mix I came up with. When I saw these fun little bunny crackers at the store, I knew they would be fun for a spring snack mix.

Gluten-free Bunny Snack Mix

My spring snack mix is free from gluten, nuts, and peanuts. You could easily make some substitutions if you are working around other allergies like dairy, soy, or corn. Just customize to fit your allergies and preferences.

Please note that if you are feeding this to someone with a nut allergy or peanut allergy, you will need to double check ingredients for manufacturing practices and make substitutions as needed. While this mix is free of nuts and peanuts, I’m not saying it is safe for the nut-allergic child. My goal in creating this mix was to make a gluten-free snack mix that my kids would be allowed to bring to eat for their own snack in their nut-free and peanut-free classrooms.

Since it can be hard to figure out what brands are safe for those of us that are extremely sensitive to wheat or gluten, I’ll give a little more info on each item I included. I was able to find all of these at my local regular grocery stores. In case you can’t, I’ve linked to where you can buy the items online, where applicable.

My boys LOVED this no bake gluten-free snack mix! I also packaged some of it up in cute little bags with bunnies on them to give away to gluten-free friends.

If you wanted to multiply this recipe to serve a whole class or team, you might pick up some cute bags to package the mix in. So fun!

I also feel you should take out nut-free from the title. I understand you think it's ok to bring into a PN/TN free classroom(since there are no visible nuts) but since you are making it and putting into bags(not bringing in the marked boxes) for other children, who MAY be allergic to PN, it is hard for the children/teachers to differentiate. If you say they are 'nut-free', it should not even 'be made at a facility with nuts or peanuts.' Yes one of us could substitute, but then it would be our recipe and not the one you claim yours to be. -from a parent with a PN/TN/egg/ coconut/sesame allergic 4 year old.

Erika, Thanks so much for the tip. I clarified my post above to note that while this is a nut-free, peanut-free snack mix, I'm not meaning it is safe for those with nut allergies to consume. My goal was a gluten-free mix that was also safe for my kids to bring to school to eat for their own snack in their nut-free, peanut-free classrooms. Let me know if you have any other suggestions for how I can make that more clear in my post.
