Crunchy Snack Mix

Crunchy Snack Mix
From WW 5 and Under

10 min Prep | 10 min Cook | Serves 6

1 1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 ts garlic powder
2 c mini pretzels
2 c reduced-fat cheese crackers
1 1/4 c puffed-wheat or puffed rice cereal
1/3 c unsalted roasted cashews or peanuts
2 ts canola oil
1/2 c raisins

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine the chili and garlic powders in a small bowl: set aside.  Toss together the pretzels, crackers, cereal, and cashews in a large bowl.  Drizzle the oil over the mixture and toss again.  Sprinkle evenly with the reserved spice mixture: toss to coat.  Spread evenly into a 9x13-inch baking pan.  Bake 10 min, stirring once. Remove from the oven and stir in the raisins.  Let the mixture cool.

1 cup per serving: 190 cal, 6 g fat, 1 g sat fat, 0 g tran fat, 1 mg chol, 257 mg sod, 33 g carb, 2 g fiber, 4 g prot, 17 mg calc.  POINTS value: 4

Good Idea  Replace the cashews or peanuts in the snack mix with an additional 1/3 c of puffed-wheat or puffed-rice cereal and you'll have a mix with a per-serving POINTS value of 3.
