One of my family favorites is the Gluten Free Chex Granola Mix in Honey Nut flavor. This is great to snack on by itself or you can add it to many different things for an awesome tasting snack. One of my favorites is a Bark Recipe that includes two simple ingredients; Chex Granola Mix and White Almond Bark. Both of this can be picked up from Publix!

Gluten Free Chex Granola Mix & Almond Bark Recipe
Save Recipe


  • 1 package Gluten Free Chex Granola Mix in Honey Nut
  • Almond Bark Vanilla Baking Bar (6 squares)
  • Shallow Pan (I used a pizza pan)
  • Parchment Paper


  1. Start by preparing your Almond Bark by taking 6 squares and placing it in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second increments and stir before placing back in. Bark will be ready when it is smooth and easy to stir. Mine was ready after 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  2. Prepare your pan with parchment paper and spray with some cooking oil. Pour your melted almond bark into your shallow pan and using a spoon, spread out the bark evenly.
  3. Sprinkle your Chex Granola Mix over the bark. When you are happy with how much is on there, using your spoon press the Granola Mix lightly into the bark. I ended up using a little more than half of a package.
  4. Place your pan into the fridge and let it cool around an hour. Once it is cooled, pick the parchment paper out of your pan and place on the counter. You should be able to easily remove the bark from the paper.
  5. Then "break" the bark. I just "fold" it and it makes a nice clean break. I break it until I have pieces that are about half the size of my palm.
  6. Sit back and enjoy.
