Suggestions: For portion control and for a snack-on-the-go, measure the snack into individual little bags.
Serves: 15 person(s)
Preparation Time: 15 mins
2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats, dry *
2 cup thin pretzels (preferably salt-free), broken into small pieces
1/2 cup walnuts or almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 cup mixed dried fruit (preferably unsweetened), such as raisins, berries, apples, dates, etc.
1/4 cup honey
In a large bowl, mix together the cereal, pretzels, nuts, and seeds until well combined. Stir in the turmeric until evenly distributed. Stir in the dried fruit.
To thin its consistency, gently warm the honey in a measuring cup in the microwave or on the stove top using a small saucepan containing hot water. Slowly add just enough of the honey into the cereal mixture, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to adhere and form clusters.
Spread the mixture on the baking sheets in a thin layer. Spray with canola oil spray. Bake until cereal is lightly browned, stirring once if baking at 350ºF, or 3 to 4 times if slow roasting at 300ºF.
Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Serve immediately or store (in a sealed container or in zip-lock plastic bags).
