Maple Syrup Granola

Maple Syrup Granola

1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons orange peel
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups puffed rice cereal
2 cups puffed wheat cereal
1/3 cup wheat germ
2 cups puffed corn
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Boil liquids in large pot until the mixture foams and rises, only a few minutes. Quickly stir in cereals and additional spices. Spread mixture on 9×13 baking sheet.

Bake 10-15 minutes, until golden and crunchy. WATCH CLOSELY . . . THIS WILL BURN EASILY AND QUICKLY!

Remove from oven and press lightly with spatula.

Let cool, then break apart and store in airtight containers in cabinet or freezer. Sometimes, we add a smidgen of chopped walnuts and dried cherries or blueberries for a treat.
