My two-year old helped me make this snack mix, and I swear we ate half of it right after it was done cooling. It's that yummy. Plus it's extremely easy to make, which is always a plus!
Yield: 4 cups
1 egg white
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 cups Multigrain Cheerios cereal
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Heat oven to 300F. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
In a large bowl, beat egg white on high speed until foamy; beat in salt. Gradually beat in brown sugar until thick and glossy. Gently stir in cinnamon, cereal, and pecans until completely coated. Spread as thinly as possible on cookie sheet.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from hot cookie sheet to a cold cookie sheet or large pan. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
- Next time I may either leave the salt out or cut it in half. It's not that the snack was overly salty--I just try to cut out salt whenever possible.
- Not sure what to do with that leftover egg yolk? Head over to "The Chewy" and make Alton Brown's delicious chocolate chip cookies.
