Granola Squares Recipe
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 ½ C crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1 can peach halves, drained and finely chopped
1/2 C firmly packed, light-brown sugar
1/2 C light corn syrup
1/2 C chunky peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
20 licorice strings
3 C gourmet maple nut granola
1. Mix rice cereal, whole-grain cereal, oats and cinnamon in mixing bowl until well combined; set aside.
2. Place pineapple and peaches between several layers of paper towels and blot to absorb excess moisture; set aside.
3. Heat brown sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium-high heat until boiling. Remove from heat and mix in peanut butter until melted. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Mix in drained and blotted fruit. Pack into a 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish and set aside until firm, about 20 minutes.
4. Cut into 60 squares.
Although often affiliated with the hippie health food movement of the 1960s, granola—originally made from a baked and crumbled mixture of graham flour and whole grains—was first created by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg in the 1870s. The food was first called granula, but was changed to 'granola' after Kellogg was sued by Dr. James Caleb Jackson, who had already created a graham flour mixture called granula. In the granola we know today, to diversify the nutritional value and flavour of granola, various seeds, fruits, nuts, syrups, puffed grains, and spices are commonly added.
