Cranberry Almond Granola

My kids go through cereal fast, it’s hard to keep up. This quick, frugal granola recipe is great and keeps them satisfied. Sometimes I make it with different nuts, depends on what I have on hand, and you can either use Agave Nectar or Honey. Go crazy and change the dried fruit up and make your own mix, all depends on what you want. From start to finish this only takes about 25 minutes.

My kids end up snaking on the clusters sometimes and it never makes it to their cereal bowl. 


3/4 cup  Honey or Agave Nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup sliced almonds ( pecans work great too, so do walnuts!)
1 cup dried cranberries


Preheat the oven to 350F

In a bowl mix all ingredients together. Place either parchment paper or a SILPAT mat onto a baking sheet. Spread your oats along the mixture and put into the oven. Let cook for about 10 minutes before mixing, make sure to spread back evenly and cook for remaining time.  Let it cool, mix up and then place in a airtight container. Can be stored up to a week.

    I have never tried agave nectar but would like to. This recipe seems simple enough that even I can make it. What a healthy snack.
