Study Treats take 3
The M1's had tests this week, so last week I made them study treats. This time I decided to do something salty instead of sweet. So, I put together a trail mix. I knew that I didn't have enough stuff to do a traditional trail mix, so I put together my own version. I think it turned out just right. It's a little better for you than the other kind as well since I used canola oil instead of butter/margarine.
Tomorrow, my roomie and I have a get together with some friends, so look for pictures and food later on! Okay, I'm off to study parasympathomimetic drugs...doesn't that sound like fun?
4 cups corn cereal
3 cups wheat cereal
1 cup almonds
1 1/2 cups wheat thins
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Nature's Seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons Season All
Preheat oven to 250 F. Stir together cereals, almonds, and wheat thins. In a separate bowl, stir together oil and seasonings through Season All*. Pour over cereal mixture and stir to cover. Place on a roasting pan and bake for about an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool for a bit. Add candy corn to the mix and enjoy!
*I didn't write down the seasoning measurements, but I'm pretty sure this is what I used! I know, I need better habits when making recipes.
