More About This Recipe

  • I can’t think of a single party that my parents went to, that didn’t have Chex™ Mix.In fact, it’s one of the few reasons why I never really minded being dragged to their boring friend’s houses when they had game nights or football parties - at least there would be snacks and Chex™ Mix. It’s the only time I ever got it. And just think, if they would have had this Pumpkin-Spice Chex™ Mix, I might have never left their houses.Not sure why my mom never made it at home, I know she liked it. Perhaps she is like me, in that when you like something too much, it becomes dangerous to make it at home. (That is, dangerous to your pants size.)While the original Chex™ Mix is quite savory, it has evolved into many, many different recipes and flavors over the years. Like the “Muddy Buddy”, which is Chex™ cereal , chocolate and peanut butter. Since the original mix, the flavor varieties have exploded. I decided to add to that concept and make a fall-themed flavor.If you are rolling your eyes at the fact that the pumpkin seeds are salted, I assure you, that is the way to go. Salty and sweet snacks are the rage and for a very good reason… they are awesome and highly addictive! Make it and you will find out.Store the mix in an airtight container until ready to serve at your party.

What Is in Pumpkin Spice & Why Does It Work So Well?

You know pumpkin spice is the flavor of fall, but what is actually in that pumpkin spice blend, and why does it work so well? We break it all down for a closer look and teach you how to make pumpkin spice at home.

Pumpkin. Spice. Are there any other two words in the English language whose union is capable of conjuring such a rich sense of coziness? Even before summer has officially thrown in the beach towel, the mere utterance of the phrase immediately makes the air feel cooler makes one start to daydream of vest-clad autumn afternoons spent traipsing through a technicolor wood, warm beverage in hand, breathing deeply of air so crisp it nearly crackles.

Or maybe your version of cozy is more hearth-centric, the indoor air heavily perfumed with baked goods and perhaps a roaring fire.

In either case: pumpkin spice. Raise your hand if you subconsciously reached for a soft blanket just now.

So, what it is about pumpkin spice (or pumpkin pie spice) that produces so strong an emotional/visceral reaction and has become synonymous with all that is good between September and December? Was it originally conceived by some mystical sorcerer? Are there alchemical principles involved that somehow trigger the very heart of the human condition? Or is it that cinnamon plus anything just always tastes super dope?

To get to the bottom of this, let’s take a look at what actually comprises pumpkin spice, how it is used, and explore some theories on the potential scientific reasons behind our seemingly insatiable, seasonal longing for it.

Why would anyone do this to a beloved classic recipe? Does pumpkin spice have a place in chex mix?

Well, it was quite easy for me since I’ve never tasted the original. In fact, this recipe teeters between sweet and savory, thanks to the addition of flaky sea salt. What I really wanted was to make something reminiscent of granola, but nothing cloyingly sweet. It’s a great little snack you can pop in your purse, or add to the kids’ lunchboxes.

Should you have more of a sweet tooth, you might want to double the maple syrup. As far as the ingredients go, the only thing I’d say is absolutely required here is the rice chex. Go with all almonds, and nix the cashews, or swap in another nut you like better. Just don’t leave them out, otherwise it’ll throw off the liquid to dry ingredients ratio.

I opted for olive oil instead of melted butter to keep this Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix vegan. Feel free to use butter, if you prefer. Using maple syrup also means it’s free of refined sugars, another snack win in my book. Hope you all enjoy!
