Honey Sesame Snack Mix

Submitted by member Brandi Monson.

If you’re like me, you’ve enjoyed “Chex party mix” on more than one occasion. But what about a healthier version? Well, you are in luck today, here it is:

Honey Sesame Snack Mix from Health Valley

2 c Health Valley Rice  “Crunch-Ems” {I’ve made it w/only one variety as well, tastes great.}

4 c Health Vally Corn Crunch-Ems

2 c Pretzel Sticks or mini pretzels {Ener-G brand for a wheat free alternative}

1 c toasted almonds, slivered

1/4 c coconut oil or butter

1/4 c honey

1 T sesame seeds

1 tsp garlic, dried, minced

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/3 tsp ginger powder

2 T sesame oil

2 T Tamari {San-J wheat free variety: yum!}

Preheat oven to 250*. In a large bowl, combine cereals, pretzels and nuts. In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil or butter. Add honey, sesame seeds, garlic, onion powder, ginger, sesame oil and tamari. Bring to a slow boil.

Drizzle liquid mixture over cereal mixture. Blend thoroughly to coat. Spread mixture onto ungreased sheet pan {I use parchment paper for easy clean-up}. bake at 250* for 45 to 60 mins or until golden brown and crisp. Stir mixture every 10-15 minutes. Remove snack mix from oven and cool. Serve & enjoy. Yield: 18 (1/2 cup) servings. Leftovers can be stored in airtight container, if you have any!

I like to mix it up with different nuts such as whole almonds and/or cashews. Sometimes I add a touch of hot chili oil to give it just a little extra zing, but not so much to make it hot. Peptias are good mixed in as well. Use your imagination and favorite ingredients! The bowl will be empty! 🙂
