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 over-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.
