I mentioned yesterday that I've been revisiting a lot of my old favorite recipes. I make this Oat Snack Mix ALL the time. Since it was originally posted 2+ years ago, in my very first week of blogging, I thought I'd share it again! Its the perfect snack to bring to any occasion and everyone loves it! You can mix it up with various cereals and mix-ins.
Oat Snack Mix
Prep Time: 10 Min / Cook Time: 45 Min / Ready In: 55 Min
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups square oat cereal
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chocolate-covered raisins
In a saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, combine the first five ingredients; heat until the butter is melted. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
In a large bowl, combine cereal, oats and nuts. Drizzle with butter mixture and mix well. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 275 degrees F for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cranberries and chocolate-covered raisins. Store in an airtight container.
