The Best Vegan Party Mix

 
 This is the best kind of party mix; it is simple to put together, makes a large amount and keeps well in an airtight container. This recipe is also very adaptable, just make sure that the total amount of add-ins like nuts and pretzels stays at 4 cups, but feel free to add your favorite kinds of crackers or nuts. With more complexity and a slight smokiness, this recipe is the ultimate homemade vegan version of Chex Mix.
