Sticks and Stones Snack Mix

EvergreenHealth logo

From the Disney FamilyFun Magazine. Each ½ cup serving of this fun snack mix, which really looks like sticks and stones, has 3 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, and 26% of the recommended daily intake of iron

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange or apple juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups oatmeal cereal squares (or other square cereal)
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 1/2 cups whole almonds
  • 1 cup raisins or dried cranberries

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 300º. Place the butter, juice concentrate, and sugar in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 45 seconds to melt the butter. Stir in the cinnamon.
  2. Spread the oatmeal squares, pretzels, and almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toss the pieces with the melted-butter mixture to coat. Bake the mix, stirring the pieces every 10 minutes, until the mixture is dry to the touch and the nuts are lightly toasted, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven, then stir in the dried fruit. Let the mix cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. Makes about 7 cups.
