Praline Granola Snack Mix

This week we’ve been busy, busy, busy in the kitchen!  

We like to take the opportunity to show our love and appreciation for neighbors and friends by giving them a little Christmas gift.  One of our favorite gifts to give is….FOOD!  You’re probably not surprise.  Sometimes we make large batches of cookies and divide them among lots of people and sometimes we just give the whole batch to one family. 

We’ve been doing this for many years now so we’re always on the look out for new recipes.  I came across a snack mix recipe using Quaker® Oatmeal Squares and pecans.  We’ve been eating Quaker® cereals for YEARS!  Quaker® Life is our favorite but we also enjoy Quaker® Real Medleys®.

It sounded like the perfect recipe for our neighbor.  I modified it to included some dried fruit and Quaker® Simply Granola, which I was able to pick up in the cereal isle at Wal-Mart.  

We eat cereal almost every morning and granola is one of our new favorite snacks so it sounded like a winning combination. For a finishing touch, I added white chocolate chips…because almost everything is a little better with “chocolate”.  I call it Praline Granola Snack Mix.

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 3 cups Quaker® Oatmeal Square Cereal (cinnamon)
  • 1 cup Quaker® Simply Granola (oat, honey & almond)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (blueberry juice infused)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

  1. I love Quaker Oatmeal Squares. In fact, I eat them so often that my kids refer to it as “Mommy’s Cereal” 😉
    I’ll have to try your granola snack mix, it looks yummy!
