Reindeers get hungry too! Mix up some oats, coconut, cranberries, and almonds as a healthy snack for Rudolph and the gang. Come on, he can only eat so many carrots!
2 cups uncooked, rolled oats
1/2 Cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 Cup honey
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 Cup dried cranberries
1/4 Cup sweetened, flaked coconut
1/4 Cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray foil with a non-stick cooking spray. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together until thoroughly combined.
Spread a thin layer of mixture on prepared sheet. Bake 10 minutes until oats or a golden brown. Cool to room temperature to allow oats to harden. Break into bits and enjoy.
