Healthy Snack Mix

This is a yummy snack that I made up for the kids one night when we had movie night. I thought that I would switch up our normal popcorn routine and try something new. They thought it was pretty good and although it was something different then popcorn, I felt like it was still pretty healthy!

Healthy Snack Mix
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

3 cups corn chex
3 cups rice chex
3 cups wheat chex
3 cups multi grain cheerios
1 cup salted peanuts
1 1/2 cups pretzel sticks
1/3 cup olive oil
4 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

In a bowl, combine cereals, peanuts and pretzels. In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients; pour over cereal mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to 2 15x10 inch baking pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

Serves: yields 3 1/2 quarts
Points: 3 per 3/4 cup
