Ingredients & Directions


  • 1 lb. 14 oz.

    slivered almonds, toasted*
  • 21-1⁄3 fl. oz.
    HERSHEY'S Simply Syrup, Jug (Item# 30571)
  • 8 fl. oz.
  • 4 tsp.
    ground cinnamon
  • 10 oz.
    sweetened dried cranberries

    Yogurt, flavor of your choice (optional)



Heat convection oven to 250°F (standard oven: 300°F). Lightly spray two 18x26-inch full sheet pans with vegetable cooking spray. Place parchment paper on prepared pans.


Combine oats and almonds in large bowl. Set aside.


Combine HERSHEY'S Simply Syrup, honey and cinnamon in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 2 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Carefully remove from microwave. Pour syrup mixture over oat mixture; stir until completely coated. Transfer to prepared pans, dividing and spreading evenly. Bake 30 to 35 minutes,** stirring every 10 minutes until mixture is dry. Cool completely.*** Add cranberries. Break into pieces. Serve over yogurt of your choice, if desired. Store in airtight container in cool dry place.


Step 2: To toast almonds: Heat convection oven to 300°F (standard oven: 350°F). Spread almonds in thin layer on sheet pans. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown; cool. Step 3: If using convection oven, rotate sheet pans one-half turn (180°) after 15 minutes of baking. Granola will harden as it cools.
