    2 1/2 cups Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
    3/4 cup Raisins, (not packed)
    3/4 cup Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins)
    1 cup Almonds, sliced
    1/4 cup Brown sugar
    1/8 tsp Cinnamon, ground
    1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
    1/4 cup Honey
    4 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 300F. Lightly spray large baking sheet with nonstick spray.

2) Mix oats, almonds, raisins, cranberries, brown sugar, and cinnamon, in large bowl.

3) Combine oil and honey in small saucepan; bring to simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

    What a wonderful recipe--especially for its simplicity! I skipped the oil and used a little applesauce instead and it turned out beautifully. I also added 1 tsp more cinnamon. Thanks! :) - 9/20/11

    I made a couple of changes because I wanted them to be more like bars. I added a few Tablespoons of Flax seed and 1/4 cup of peanut butter. Baked them in a 9 x 13 inch pan for the same amount of time and cut them into bars. They were awesome! - 7/22/12

    I prefer the loose granola and add them in my plain yogurt and even make it into a cereal. I added pecans as well. Good one for even just to snack on. - 3/26/17
