By Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD

Active Time: 10 minutes

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the cereal and peanuts.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites with a whisk until foamy. Whisk in the maple syrup, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, cumin and salt.

Add the egg white mixture to the cereal mixture. Toss to coat completely.

Spread the mixture in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 60 minutes, stirring at 30 minutes. 

Allow the mix to cool for 30 minutes or longer. Combine with the dried fruit and chocolate chips before serving. Store in an airtight container.
