Nuts and bolts

My wife, Sue, introduced me to this snack that can be prepared in 5 minutes. Apparently it was the go-to solution for nibbles for Barossa housewives when they were entertaining in the 80’s (as you can probably tell from the ingredients).
– Contains nuts (duh), gluten and plenty of sugar (in the Nutri-grain)
– Borderline addictive.
  • 295g nutrigrain cereal
  • 375g salted peanuts
  • 1 pack French onion soup mix
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


  1. Empty nutrigrain and peanuts into large bowl.
  2. Warm oil over low-medium heat. Remove from heat, and stir through dry powders.
  3. Pour flavoured oil over nutrigrain/peanut mix and stir to coat all ingredients.
  4. Store in a sealed container.
