Serves: 6


  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup chopped unsalted pecans
  • 1 cup dried cranberries 
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine oats and pecans in a large bowl. In a small saucepan, combine honey, oil, and spices. Warm over low heat, stirring frequently until mixture becomes thin. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour warm honey mixture over oats and pecans, toss to coat evenly. Spread mixture onto prepared baking sheet, bake for 25 minutes. Gently flip with a spatula, add cranberries, and bake for 10 minutes more until dry and evenly brown. Cool.
