  • 1/3 cup agave syrup can sub honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Measure out the quick oats, cereal, dried cranberries and almonds into a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Over medium high heat, bring the brown sugar and agave syrup to a boil. Once it starts to bubble, set a timer for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour the hot liquid over the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Press the mixture into the top portion of a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Troubleshooting: Granola bars didn't stick together? The mixture wasn't boiled long enough. The granola bars are hard? The mixture was boiled too long.
If using honey, boil for just 45 seconds.
