Canola oil cooking spray
2 cups granola, nonfat, sugar-free
1 cup whole-grain cereal (flakes)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1-1/2 Tbsp. butter, unsalted
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, roasted, unsalted
1/2 cup raisins
Remember, this is a “once-in-a-while” indulgence . . .
Coat a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Line pan with wax paper and let the edges hang over the sides of pan. Spray a thin coating of cooking spray on the wax paper. Coat a wooden mixing spatula or spoon with cooking spray for later use.
In a large saucepan, heat marshmallows and butter on medium heat until they are melted (about 3 minutes), stirring constantly. Take saucepan off heat. Use the coated spatula to mix the granola, cereal flakes, seeds, and raisins into the mixture. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan, and then smooth and press mixture into an even layer with your hands (for best results, dampen your hands or spray them lightly with the cooking spray). Allow baking dish to cool. When cooled, turn baking dish over on a cutting board and pull the wax paper off. Cut cooled mixture into small squares. Makes 12 servings.
