Springy Snack Mix


We created this recipe a few years ago when teaching our springtime snacks class (We have two of them coming up in April). We wanted a savory trail mix, but how to add veggies? Dried veggies, ah ha! It was recently a big hit at our cooking club with both parents and little ones. Easy, yummy, healthy...doesn't get much better than that.


Springy Snack Mix

Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened Cereal

1/2 cup Dried Veggies

1/2 cup Sunflower or Pumpkin Seeds

1/2 cup Nuts (optional)

1/2 cup Pretzels

1/2 cup small Crackers

6 TBSP pure Butter or Earth Balance (non-hydrogenated spread)

3 tbsp pure Vegetable Juice or Tomato Juice

2 tbsp Italian Seasoning (or other favorite dried herb)


Preheat oven to 350°f. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined -kids love this part!! Melt the butter or earth balance with the veggie juice in a glass measuring cup in the microwave add seasoning and whisk. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir till all of the items have a glossy coat. Place on parchment lined baking sheet(s), with the layer being no thicker than an inch or so. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to a week!
