1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup unsweetened apple juice concentrate
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 Tbsp. almond extract
6 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups dried cherries or cranberries
1 cup slivered almonds
Vanilla yogurt, optional

In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, milk powder, honey, apple juice concentrate and oil.  Cook and stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved; stir in extract.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, cherries and almonds.  Drizzle with sugar mixture and mix well.

Spread in a thin layer in two 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pans coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.  Cool completely.  Serve with yogurt if desired.  Store in an airtight container.

*Add a little baking cocoa to the brown sugar for a flavor twist.
