Ingredients

4 cups (1 L) old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup (250 mL) natural wheat and barley cereal
1 cup (250 mL) sliced unblanched almonds
1/2 cup (125 mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (50 mL) frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup (50 mL) water
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted
2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) honey
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
Grated zest of 1 orange
1 cup (250 mL) dried pitted cherries
1 cup (250 mL) light seedless raisins

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Lightly coat a 15 x 10 x 1 (38 cm x 25 cm x 2.5 cm) jelly-roll pan with vegetable spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine oats, cereal, almonds, sugar, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together apple juice concentrate, water, butter, oil, honey, vanilla, and orange zest. Pour over oats mixture, tossing until well combined. Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until golden and slightly crunchy — about 1 hour. Remove the pan to a rack to cool completely — about 1 hour. When cooled, stir in cherries and raisins. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 7 cups (1.75L).
