  • In 2-cup measure, beat egg white with fork. Mix sugar, salt and spices together in small bowl. Pour egg white over cereal; sprinkle with sugar-spice mixture.

  • Microwave on High 3 to 4 minutes, stirring after every minute until cereal and nuts are browned and sound crisp when stirred with spoon. Pour onto waxed paper to cool. Store tightly covered.

Tips

* 1 pasteurized egg white equals 3 tablespoons fat-free liquid egg white product.

TIPS

Healthy: Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Method Note: The egg white coats the cereal and helps the spices stick to the cereal and nuts, just like in the oven-baked version. Be sure to use a pasteurized egg white.

Substitution: If you don't have pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice, just mix 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves together. Add to sugar before sprinkling over cereal and nuts.
