1 (12 ounce) package crispy corn and rice cereal
5 ounces slivered almonds
6 ounces toasted, chopped pecans
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup dark corn syrup (see recipe below)
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw Turbinado Cane Sugar blended in the ninja blender)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a large roasting pan.
In a large bowl, mix crispy corn and rice cereal, slivered almonds and toasted, chopped pecans. (or your favorite add-ins)
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and mix with dark corn syrup and light brown sugar. Pour the mixture over the crispy corn and rice cereal mixture. Stir and shake to coat all the nuts and cereal.
Pour the coated mixture into the prepared roasting pan. Stirring approximately every 15 minutes, cook 1 hour in the preheated oven. Cool on wax paper, and store in airtight containers.

Brenda Forsyth was born and raised in Iowa. She enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter when she is not working out.
Brenda found her passion for health and fitness in 2014. Being considered obese her entire life she learned how nutrition and staying active plays a huge roll in her life and ended up losing 158lbs.
Brenda claims she was very ”gym-timadated” to walk through the doors of a gym. So she started lifting in her basement and learning on her own using different workout websites and participating in 12 week challenges online.
Recently Brenda decided that she was not going to be intimidated any longer and finally joined a gym. “I don’t know what I was so intimidated by. It’s an AMAZING place! Fitness isn’t one size fits all.”
Brenda has a whole new outlook on life and wants to motivate and encourage other people in every aspect of their life and remind them that nothing is impossible.
