HEART HEALTHY SWEET AND SPICY SNACK MIX
Contributed by: from Mayo Clinic Healthy Recipes, 2005
Ingredients:
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzos (chickpeas), rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • 2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
  • 1 cup dried pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 2 TBS reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Drain and rinse garbanzos and pat dry. Lightly coat a 15 1/2-inch X 10 1/2-inch baking sheet with butter-flavored cooking spray. Spray a heavy skillet with cooking spray. Add garbanzos to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the beans begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer garbanzos to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the beans lightly with cooking spray. Bake, stirring frequently, until the beans are crisp, about 20 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix the cereal, pineapple and raisins. Add roasted garbanzos and stir to mix evenly. In a large glass measuring cup combine honey, Worcestershire sauce and spices and stir to mix evenly. Pour the mixture over the snack mix and toss gently. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep the mixture from burning. Remove from oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
