  • 2 cups puffed corn cereal
  • 2 cups bite-size corn square cereal
  • 2 cups whole-wheat or whole-grain melba toast rounds, coarsely broken (3 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup crunchy chipotle- or falafel-flavored chickpeas (see Tip)
  • ½ cup shelled roasted salted pistachio nuts


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Combine both of the corn cereals and the melba toast rounds in a 13x9-inch baking pan; set aside.
  2. Stir together the oil, honey, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl. Pour the oil mixture over the cereal mixture in the pan; toss until well coated.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring twice. Stir in chickpeas and pistachio nuts. Spread snack mix on a large sheet of foil and let cool.
  • Tip: If you can't find the crunchy chickpeas, increase the puffed corn cereal to 3 cups.
