Ingredients

  • 1

    cup rolled oats

  • 1

    cup wheat flakes (see Shopping Tip)

  • 1

    cup sunflower seeds or chopped nuts

  • 1/2

    cup honey

  • 1

    cup dried cranberries

  • Pinch of salt

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 2. Spread oats, wheat flakes and seeds (or nuts) on a baking sheet. Bake until fragrant and starting to brown, about 10 minutes. 3. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Cook 1/2 cup honey in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, without stirring, until large foamy bubbles form and it starts to darken at the edges, 2 to 4 minutes. (The bubbles will start out small and increase to about 3/4 inch or larger when the honey’s done.) 4. Immediately pour the toasted oat mixture into the honey, add cranberries and salt and stir until completely coated. Quickly press the granola into the prepared pie pan using a heat-resistant spatula coated with cooking spray. Let cool for 30 minutes. Cut into wedges and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. • Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and store at room temperature for 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. • Shopping Tip: Wheat flakes are simply wheat kernels that have been steamed and rolled, oatmeal-style. Look for them in natural-foods stores.
