Serves: 12 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups crisp rice cereal
  • ¼ cup toasted wheat germ (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, rice cereal, wheat germ, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, and espresso powder. Set aside.
  3. Place the canola oil, honey, peanut butter, and maple syrup in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the mixture over the oat mixture and stir until combined. Spread out onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring after every 5 minutes, until golden. When the granola is finished baking, move it over a bit until it only covers ¾ of the baking sheet lengthwise, and press it down into one even layer. Cool on a wire rack. Once cool, break into pieces and mix in the peanut butter chips and dried cranberries. Store in an air tight container at room temperature. Enjoy!
