I love making our own Chex Mix. Since school is back in swing, I enjoy snacks like this for my lunch.
This time, I tried making our original chex mix (made with butter) side-by-side with this version – made with olive oil.
The verdict? We actually couldn’t tell much of a difference between the two. They were both excellent.
So, I figured I should share this with you and let you decide!
Olive Oil Chex Mix
- 3 T olive oil
- 1 tsp. seasoned salt
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 7 C “Chex-like” cereal
- 1 C pretzels
Preheat the oven to 250. In a large 9x13 metal baking dish, combine the 3 T olive oil, 1 tsp. seasoned salt, 2 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. garlic powder and 4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce together in the pan.
Add in the 7 C cereal and 1 C pretzels. Stir well to coat.
Bake at 250 for a total of 45 minutes, stirring every 15.
Allow to cool, and then store in an airtight container until they are devoured!
