Total Time:
15 mins


  • 3 cups Honey Nut Chex™ cereal

  • 3 cups Cinnamon Chex™ cereal

  • 1 cup whole almonds

  • 1 cup hazelnuts or pecans

  • 1 pasteurized egg white*

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice


  1. In large bowl, mix cereals and almonds. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.


One pasteurized egg white equals 3 tablespoons of fat-free liquid egg white product. 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.

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

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.
