Snack Mix with Coconut Oil

My parents recently became vegan for health reasons and coconut oil has been a lifesaver! Not only is it nutritious and has amazing benefits for everyone, but it also can be used in place of butter in this popular snack mix. It’s awesome to be able to serve great, easy snacks that work for various diets. This can easily be made gluten free as well by exchanging the wheat cereal for more corn and rice and switching out the pretzels or sesame sticks for additional nuts or a gluten free pretzel. This is perfect for serving as a holiday snack!
