Cook Time:


  • 1 teaspoon(s) neutral-flavored vegetable oil, such as organic canola
  • 1/2 cup(s) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup(s) honey
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 3 cup(s) rolled oats
  • 1 cup(s) Dried Apple Dice
  • 1/2 cup(s) dried fruit, such as cranberries, raisins, or currants
  • 1 cup(s) nuts and seeds, such as walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pepitas, sunflower seeds or a combination


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with the oil.
  2. 2. Combine the sugar, juice, honey, cinnamon, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  3. 3. Put the oats in a medium bowl and pour in the sugar mixture, stirring to coat the oats evenly. Spread the mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, stirring once.
  4. 4. In the same medium bowl, combine the dried apples, other dried fruit, and nuts and seeds. Add the toasted oats and stir to combine. Return to the baking sheet and bake for another 20 minutes, stirring once. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
