Recipe Details
Ingredients
  • 3 cup(s) uncooked quick oats
  • 2 cup(s) puffed rice cereal
  • 6 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1/4 cup(s) apple juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup(s) slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup(s) dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup(s) raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix uncooked oats and puffed rice cereal together and spread on a non-stick baking sheet with sides; bake for 10 minutes, stirring once.
  2. Meanwhile, mix honey, oil, apple juice, spices and vanilla together in a cup. When oats and puffed rice are done, spoon into a large bowl; set pan aside. Add almonds to cereal mixture and stir to combine. Pour honey-spice mixture over cereal mixture and mix thoroughly to distribute and coat completely; spread mixture back over pan.
  3. Return pan to oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes more, stirring every few minutes. Remove from oven and spoon back into bowl. (Note: Be careful that granola doesn't burn - especially cereal along sides of pan.)
  4. Stir raisins and cranberries into mixture; let cool. Store in an airtight container. Yields about a half cup per serving.
