Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Mixed berries, for serving
  • 1 (2-pound) container nonfat plain yogurt
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Line a 9-inch square baking sheet with foil, allowing the foil to extend over the sides. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Mix the oats, cranberries, almonds, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Combine the butter, sugar and honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the butter melts and the mixture begins to boil. Add the vanilla and stir. Remove from the heat.

  • Pour the butter over the oats, mixing until well coated. Transfer to the prepared pan and, using a spatula, press the oats evenly into the pan.

  • Bake until the top is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool. Using the foil as aid, lift out of the pan and place on a work surface. Crumble into pieces. Serve with berries, plain yogurt and drizzle with additional honey.
