Healthier Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and bolts can be a decently healthy as far as party snacks go but all the recipes I found added almost of cup of butter. Completely unnecessary.

Preheat over to 350F.

Mix pretzels, peanuts, bagel chips, cheerios and wheat squares in a big bowl.

Melt margarine. Add Worcestershire sauce and spices. Pour over dry mixture. 
*Tip: Pour margarine mixture on edges of bowl instead of directly on mix. This allows for better overall coverage instead of the wet mixture getting absorbed by a few bagel chips.*

Put mixture into one or two baking pans. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes. Toss every 5 minutes.
