Hmm, doesn't seem like you are getting many answers here. Personally, I don't know of any good subs for your "nuts & bolts" mix. I've never thought of that as a healthy snack. I suppose, if you use all organic and whole food cereals, pretzels, etc you will have a little bit better food, but not much because over all all these things are pretty refined products and are also very caloric. Unless you are sure that the EVOO you use is specific for high heat cooking you will end up with trans fats or at least carcinogenic compounds that happen when you mix hot oil with grains and other starches.
I think, unless I am mistaken that to make this kind of snack you have to start with snack foods that have already been subjected to high heat and refinery methods that aren't healthy and then you have to take these things and heat them again in your kitchen wrecking any natural elements that might be left.
I suggest finding some other kind of snack...but that is just my opinion. How about gently roasted organic nuts like almonds, cashews, hazelnuts maybe mixed with organic dried fruits and/or coconut, seeds etc. There are lots of trail mix recipes on the web.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
