Herby, savory, chicken-seasoned Chex and crackers mixed with maple waffle cereal—so addicting!


  • 1 ½ cups wheat Chex
  • 1 ½ cups corn Chex (or rice Chex)
  • ½ cup Original Goldfish
  • ½ cup white cheddar Cheez-Its
  • ½ cup mini Club crackers
  • 1 cup Eggo Homestyle Waffle Cereal


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon chicken Better Than Bouillon or 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 ½ tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon each: garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, & thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 250°.
  2. Mix all cereal/cracker ingredients except Eggo Waffle cereal in a 9×13 pan.
  3. In a small bowl, melt butter & chicken bouillon in the microwave. Mix until combined as best as you can—the chicken bouillon might not mix that well but do what you can.
  4. In another small bowl, mix the nutritional yeast & herbs together.
  5. Pour melted butter and bouillon onto the cereal/crackers and toss. Then sprinkle spice mixture over and toss until all is evenly coated.
  6. Put pan in the oven for 1 hour, tossing every 15 minutes.
  7. After the hour, take the pan out of the oven and add the Eggo Waffle cereal.
  8. Let cool & enjoy! Store in an airtight container.


  • This is about a half batch of the original Chex mix recipe. It’s a good amount for just me and my huz to snack on for a couple days but if you have more snackers in your family, you might want to double the recipe.
