1 ½ cups uncooked quick oats

1 cup ready-to-eat puffed millet or puffed brown rice

3 Tablespoons honey

½ teaspoon coconut oil

2 Tablespoons 100% apple juice

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup slivered almonds

¼ cup dried cranberries

¼ cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix uncooked oats and puffed cereal together and spread on a non-stick baking sheet with sides; bake for 10 minutes, stirring once.

Meanwhile, mix honey, oil, apple juice, spices and vanilla together in a cup. When oats and puffed cereal 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.

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.)

Stir raisins and cranberries into mixture; let cool. Store in an airtight container. Yields about a half cup per serving.
