Second Period Munchies

Contributed by: News Canada

There's a little sweet and a whole lot of flavour in this peanut snack mix.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 3 cups (750 ml) peanuts
  • 1 cup (250 ml) pretzels, preferably low-sodium
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) banana chips, coarsely broken
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dried cranberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300F (140C).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk egg white until frothy. Whisk in sugar, chili powder, cumin, cayenne and salt (if using salted peanuts, use only tsp (4 ml) salt). Add peanuts and stir to coat. Spread on baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake in preheated oven, stirring a couple of times then spreading back into a single layer, until peanuts are barely sticky, about 30 minutes. If they are still a little sticky, they will dry on cooling. Stir in pretzels, banana chips and cranberries. Let dry completely.
