Wholesome Morning Granola Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro


  • 4 cups regular oats
  • 2 cups puffed rice cereal (such as Arrowhead Mills)
  • 1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries


Preheat oven to 325°.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the juices in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced to 2/3 cup. Remove from heat; stir in honey. Slowly pour juice mixture over oat mixture, tossing to coat. Spread oat mixture evenly onto a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly; stir in blueberries. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container.

    "I use fruit juices and other natural sweeteners to sweeten this cereal. On cold mornings, it's wonderful with warm milk." -CL Reader
