“I got this from the "Eating for IBS" cookbook by Heather Van Vorous. I haven't tried it yet, but it's supposed to be "crunchy, sweet, and salty all at once." Sounds like a great way to calm your cravings! Make sure you see my note at the bottom about cooking time, since microwave powers vary.”
5 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 14 cup honey
  • 2 cups Corn Chex
  • 2 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 cup small pretzels


  1. In a small bowl, stir together oil and honey until well blended.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together cereals and pretzels, top with honey mixture, and stir until well combined.
  3. Microwave on high for 5-6 minutes, stirring well every 90 seconds, until it is cooked through and begins to look golden (it should no longer look "wet", but will still be slightly sticky!).
  4. Cool thoroughly before serving.
  5. Note: You might want to start nuking it for 45 seconds at a time and stirring in between; I've heard of some people having trouble with it burning otherwise.
  6. It may take as little as 3 minutes, so watch carefully!
