Homemade Granola Clusters Recipe - Holiday Gift Idea

The go to snack around here lately is Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries & Almonds. All of my favorite ingredients, all in one box! The apples, cranberries and almonds, combined with Quaker® Simply Granola Oats is so good. If you want to turn it into a holiday treat, keep scrolling for my cranberry apple granola cluster recipe. It’s a great recipe to make together as a family, one of our favorite holiday traditions. I package the clusters up in jars for a homemade holiday gift. 


4 cups Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries & Almonds
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla


Step 1: Head to Walmart and pick up a box of Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries & Almonds. It’s not only delicious (and has very low sodium), but it’s also filling with crunchy granola clusters and fruit. It’s yummy on it’s own, but you’ll want to try this granola cluster recipe! 


 Step 2: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Add 4 cups of Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries & Almonds to a large mixing bowl. 


Step 3: Add 4 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon to the granola, mix. 


Step 4: Mix in 1/2 cup honey and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Place all of the mixed ingredients, spread out on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. 


Step 5: Print out the PRINTABLE TAGS and cut them out. Use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top.
