10 grams puffed amaranth or millet  /  ½ cup


30 grams rolled oats  /  ¼ cup 


45 sunflower seed  /  ¼ cup


1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1/4 teaspoon organic allspice


1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

35 grams dry cranberries  /  ¼ cup 


Prep a sheet pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 325° F.


Add all the grains along with the seeds, salt, ginger, black pepper, allspice and cinnamon into a large heat proof bowl and mix well.


In a small sauce pot add the sugar, honey and glucose or corn syrup.  Bring to a boil until it reaches 250° degrees.  Remove from the heat and add the baking soda mixing until it bubbles up. Immediately pour over the grain and spice mixture and keep mixing together until all the grains are coated.  You’ll want to work fast. 


Quickly lay out onto the sheet pan.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the cranberry seeds on top while still tacky so the seeds stick as it cools.  


Once cool mix in the dry cranberries. 


Store in an airtight container.  Great with milk as a cereal, with yogurt as a granola or simply as a snack.
