One of my favorite snacks is granola. Usually I purchase it already made and pack it into small baggies to make sure I’m eating the right portions. It’s also a super practical way to pack a treat for work and/or school. But those of us who’ve made granola at home know that there’s nothing quite like the flavor, consistency and aroma of homemade granola. Taking advantage of the ingredients I had on-hand along with my favorite cereal, I decided to try out a new granola recipe with Fiber One™ Cranberry Almond. This recipe is so simple and can be made in batches because once prepared, the granola can be stored for up to two weeks.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of Fiber One™ Protein Cranberry Almond cereal
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Sea salt

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 320°F.
  • 2
    Mix the olive oil, pumpkin spice, pinch of salt and syrup in a bowl. Add the cereal and almonds. Mix again.
  • 3
    Sprinkle the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake until the granola begins to brown (about 35 minutes). You can remove it from the oven early (15 minutes into cook time) to adjust the granola on the pan for even browning.

    After the granola has baked for one half hour, remove the sheet from the oven and add raisins and another pinch of salt, if necessary. Let cool before storing.

  • Add any other kind of dried fruit to the raisins.
  • Sunflower seeds also make a delicious addition.
  • Be sure to store the granola in a hermetically-sealed container.
