The Best Nut Free Snack Mix
Recipe type: Snacks
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 3 cups air-popped popcorn (or 2 tablespoons kernels)
  • ⅓ cup seeds (I used a combination of raw sunflower seeds and raw pepitas)
  • ⅓ cup crispy roasted edamame [*contains soy*]
  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is my preferred food allergy friendly brand)
  • ¼ cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder (may omit for children)
  • Olive oil spray (I use olive oil in my Misto Oil Sprayer).
  1. If not using store-bought air-popped popcorn, place popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag, fold down the top and microwave for one minute and 30 seconds, or until kernels are popped. Place 3 cups of the popcorn in a large bowl.
  2. Wait until the popcorn has cooled and then add the remaining ingredients. Gently mix together.
  3. Spray snack mix for a few seconds with olive oil and then sprinkle sea salt and chili powder on top. (Or any other desired spices).
  4. Enjoy! Snack mix will store well in an air-tight container for a few days.
*May substitute additional seeds if soy allergy.
If allergic to sunflower seeds, may use more pumpkin seeds or whole flaxseeds or additional popcorn.
If allergic to corn may substitute puffed rice cereal.
I order many of my seeds and dried fruit online from Gerbs Allergen Friendly Foods to prevent cross-contamination.
