   The microwave did not make the mix as crunchy as I like, but it does
   do a thorough job of cooking the mix without the problem of the
   mix sticking together so badly the first cycle, as happens when you
   use the oven.
 
   This was a big hit at my house.  No one seemed to mind the fact that
   this mix had NO butter in it.  Since I am the only one in the family
   actively persuing a VLF lifestyle, I consider this a major
   accomplishment !!
