Crunchy Savory Snack Mix

You may know I love to play volleyball, and this snack mix is perfect to share with my teammates between games. It’s nutty, crunchy, crispy, buttery, and a little tangy…it’s hard not to eat the whole batch! This is similar to snack mixes you can buy at the store, but I make it with wholesome ingredients so I know exactly what I’m eating.

  • 6 tablespoons/3/4 stick/85 g unsalted butter or a nondairy butter substitute
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 21/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 12.3-ounce/385 g box multigrain cereal squares
  • 1 cup/30 g spelt pretzels
  • 1 cup/28 g pita chips
  • 1 cup/145 g unsalted almonds
  • 1 cup/140 g unsalted cashews


  1. Preheat the oven to 250ºF/120°C.
  2. Melt the butter in a large roasting pan. Add the Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt, onion powder, and garlic powder and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well, making sure the sauce is coating the mixture evenly.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly in the bottom of the roasting pan and bake for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so, until the mixture is golden and crispy and until all moisture from the sauce has evaporated. (Alternatively, if you don’t have a large roasting pan, you can melt the butter in a saucepan, add the seasonings, and then thoroughly mix all the ingredients in a big bowl. Spread it out on two baking sheets, and bake as directed.)
  4. Remove from the oven, spread out the mixture on paper towels, and let it cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container.
