This perennial favorite snack mix recipe is loved by everyone. There are so many variations of this idea it's hard to keep track! Actually, this recipe is the real original (I think). This is a version updated with current ingredients, especially the garlic flavored bagel chips.

You can vary the ingredients as you'd like in this easy recipe. Use another type of cereal, add different nuts, or substitute nuts for all of the other snack foods. 

Watch this mix carefully when it's in the oven. The temperature is low so it shouldn't burn, but you never know. If anything starts to look too brown around the edges, stir it again, then take it out of the oven.
