Dietitian's tip:

Replacing peanuts and pretzels with garbanzos and dried fruit increases the fiber and reduces the fat and sodium.

To make this plant based, leave out honey.

  1. 2 cans (15 ounces each) garbanzos, rinsed, drained and patted dry
  2. 2 cups unsweetened wheat squares cereal
  3. 1 cup dried pineapple chunks
  4. 1 cup raisins
  5. 2 tablespoons honey
  6. 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  7. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon chili powder


Heat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 15 1/2-inch-by-10 1/2-inch baking sheet with butter-flavored cooking spray.

Generously spray a heavy skillet with butter-flavored cooking spray. Add garbanzos to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the beans begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer garbanzos to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the beans lightly with cooking spray. Bake, stirring frequently, until the beans are crisp, about 20 minutes.

Lightly coat a roasting pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. Measure the cereal, pineapple and raisins into the pan. Add roasted garbanzos. Stir to mix evenly.

In a large glass measuring cup combine honey, Worcestershire sauce and spices. Stir to mix evenly. Pour the mixture over the snack mix and toss gently. Spray mixture again with cooking spray. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep the mixture from burning.

Remove from oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
