Oat Snack Mix

"Kids of all ages seem to enjoy the creative combination of ingredients in this not-so-sweet mix," says Patti Brandt of Reedsburg, Wisconsin. "My three children would rather munch on this snack than on candy."

    This recipe is fantastic! My husband requests it all the time and takes it to work with him. I sometimes use dark chocolate peanuts or blueberries just to change it up!

    I have made this SO many times & always get asked for the recipe! I usually make a double or triple batch... I substitute yogurt covered raisins for the chocolate chips & use half square oat cereal & half Life cereal
