Crunchy Cereal Mix

Make this snack on a rainy day and store in an air tight container. Dip out a cup and put into a separate container for the day. Great for a quick, healthy snack on the go.

Makes about 10 cups


5 cups Crispix cereal
2 cups chow mein noodles
1 cup honey roasted (or plain) peanuts
ΒΌ (1/2 stick) cup butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Combine cereal, noodles and peanuts into a large bowl.

Melt butter in microwave, add soy sauce and salt. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture and toss to coat.

Bake on baking sheet until golden about 15 minutes, stirring once after 5-7 minutes to prevent sticking. Remove from oven, add raisins.

Allow to cool. Store in airtight container.

Cooking Wiser

Decrease calories and fat but using olive oil to replace the butter.

If raisins are not a family favorite, use crasins or just omit.
