Peanut Butter Granola

Author: Canadian Living

Although this crunchy cereal isn't a low-calorie version of granola, the heart-healthy monounsaturated fats found in peanut butter and almonds make it a better choice than cereals and cereal bars that contain trans-fatty acids. Dried blueberries and cranberries are loaded with antioxidants, but you can use any dried fruit you have on hand.
