Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325° F with oven rack in center position.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (reserve raisins). Blend maple syrup, oil and almond extract in small bowl, then pour mixture over dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly using hands or two rubber spatulas. (Hint: if using hands, wet them first.)

Spread the mixture thinly on 2 or 3 cookie sheets (lightly sprayed or wiped with oil, or use sheets of natural parchment paper, available at PCC). Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, stir well and return to oven for another 10 to 15 minutes until light, toasty brown — not overly toasted.

Transfer hot cereal back to the large bowl, immediately add the raisins and toss well so they absorb the heat of the cereal and plump nicely. Cool completely and store in closed jars or other containers.

great recipe!

I enjoy tweaking this recipe, including using your multi-grain rolled flakes (from your bulk section) and substituting or adding dried cranberries for the raisins. It is great as a breakfast cereal or topping on an apple crumble.
