Sweet and Savory Snack Mix

Who doesn't love a crunchy, sweet and savory snack mix? This tasty blend includes classic ingredients, like rice square cereal and Worcestershire sauce, along with some more surprising additions like our chunky, almond-filled Almond Butter Granola! Serve it in a bowl, or serve it in individual snack-sized ramekins or bags to safely share with a crowd.

1 ½  tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp cumin

½  tsp cayenne pepper

¼ tsp salt

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce *

1 tbsp honey *

¼ cup coconut oil

3 cups Michele’s Almond Butter Granola

1 cups mini pretzels

½ cup dried cherries

½ cup raw pumpkin seeds

1 cup wheat square cereal (like Chex--use Rice for gluten-free)

2 cups corn square cereal

2 cups plain popped popcorn

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together spices, salt, Worcestershire sauce, honey and coconut oil. Microwave on high 1 min, or until coconut oil is melted. Whisk together until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine granola, pretzels, dried cherries, pumpkin seeds, and wheat and corn Chex. Drizzle spice mixture over. Toss to coat.
  4. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 min, tossing and stirring halfway through cooking.
  5. Stir in popcorn. Cool completely.

Kitchen tip: Make this tasty mix gluten-free by using gluten-free pretzels, rice square cereal instead of wheat, and confirm your Worcestershire sauce is gluten-free by choosing a clearly marked brand like Lea & Perrins. All varieties of Michele’s Granola are gluten-free!

* Make it vegan: Use a vegan Worchestershire sauce like Annie's and sub maple syrup for honey.
