Fruity Granola

When you get a craving for a wholesome snack, go with this fruity granola recipe. You’ll love the chewy sweetness of the honeyed cereal, and fruit and nut mixture. It’s great as a snack out of hand or in a parfait glass, layered with low-fat yogurt.

3 cups old-fashioned oats
½ cup sliced almonds
1 ¼ cups honey
½ cup grape-nuts
1 tbsp. butter

1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 ½ cups Wheaties
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup raisins
½ cup dried banana chips

Combine oats and almonds; spread evenly in a 15x10x1 inch baking pan coated with nonstick spray. Bake at 325°F for 15 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the honey, grape-nuts, butter and cinnamon. Add oat mixture; stir to combine. Return mixture to the pan. Bake 15 – 20 minutes longer or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Break granola into pieces. Place in a large bowl; stir in the Wheaties, cranberries, raisins and banana chips. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 2 months.
