This is a delicious new granola recipe that I've added to my repertoire.
Cherry Almond Granola
¼ C. brown sugar
½ C. nonfat dry milk
½ C. honey
1/3 C. apple juice
2 tabl. Canola oil
1 tabl. almond extract
6 C. quick oats
1 C. dried cherries (or cranberries) – Dried cherries can be expensive but I found them for a good price at a dollar store.
1 C. organic sunflower seeds (could use sliced almonds or pecans instead)
Mix sugar, milk powder, honey, apple juice and oil; heat over medium until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in extract. Combine oats, cherries and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Drizzle with sugar mixture and mix well. Place granola on two large, rimmed cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Cool and store.
