2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1.25 cups of Kamut Oats
1 1/2 cups puffed brown rice cereal (I used puffed Kamut)
1/4 cup of sliced almonds
1/4 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen & thawed
1/4 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen & thawed
1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
1/2 cup dried unsweetened cherries, roughly chopped
Note: You can use any kind of oats you have!
Measure the oats, nuts & rice cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
Puree raspberries,strawberries and apple sauce in a food processor or blender. You should end up with 3/4 cup puree. If you’re short, supplement with unsweetened applesauce until you have a full 3/4 cup of fruit puree.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, fruit puree, and almond extract. Whisk until very smooth.
Pour wet ingredients over dry and stir until the oats & rice cereal are evenly coated. Spread mixture on the prepared cookie sheet in an even layer.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove sheet from the oven, stir and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the granola is golden brown and crisp.
Remove granola from the oven, toss with dried cherries, and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Serving size is 13 -1/2 cups
