Ingredients

3 cups regular oats
2 cups sweetened puffed-wheat cereal (such as Kellogg's Smacks)
1/2 cup wheat bran
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
1/2 cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine applesauce, honey, oil, cinnamon, and ginger in a small saucepan, and cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until honey is melted, stirring occasionally. Pour applesauce mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat. Place mixture in a jelly-roll pan, and bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Gently stir granola, and bake an additional 15 minutes or until dry.
