Expert Tips

  • Did You Know?: For spicy flavour, omit dried milk or creamer. If dried milk or creamer is used, flavour will be less spicy and a little sweeter.
  • Purchasing: Look for the spices - and bottles of orange peel in the baking section. Or you can save a bit of money sometimes purchasing these items in bulk.
  • OVEN DIRECTIONS: Heat oven to 300°F. In ungreased large roasting pan, mix cereals, almonds and banana chips. In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients until well mixed. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper or paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.
