Honey-Nut Snack Mix

Yield 7 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 cups toasted oat bran cereal
  • 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries or raisins

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.

  2. Stir together butter, brown sugar, and honey in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until butter melts and sugar dissolves.

  3. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring to coat. Spread in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.

  4. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes, stirring once. Stir in cranberries, and bake 5 more minutes. Spread immediately on wax paper; cool. Store snack mix in an airtight container.

  5. NOTE: For testing purposes only, we used Quaker Oat Bran for toasted oat bran cereal.
