Sticky, Crunchy Cereal Rounds

Number of Servings: 12

Serving Size: 1 round

These cookies are like cereal treats, but are loaded with fiber and other good stuff. Because the recipe is made with canola oil, the rounds will remain chewy and not dry out.

Name: Amount:
Canola oil cooking spray
(1 ounce) chopped pecans or walnuts 0.25 cup
mini marshmallows 1.25 cups
light corn syrup 0.25 cup
Tbspcanola oil 2
whole-grain granola cereal clusters with dried fruits and nuts 8 oz
dried apricot halves, chopped 6
tsp orange zest 1
1:

Coat a 12-cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray; set aside.

2:

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add nuts and cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; add marshmallows, syrup, and canola oil to pan. Stir until marshmallows are completely melted and add cereal, apricots, and zest. Stir quickly to blend.

3:

Remove from heat and spoon equal amounts of cereal mixture into each of 12 muffin tins. Press down lightly with fingertips or the back of a spoon coated with cooking spray to prevent sticking while leveling out rounds. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove rounds from pan and store in an airtight container.
