  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  2. Arrange cereal, oats, almonds, sunflower seeds and cranberries in medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Microwave Becel® Buttery Taste margarine with maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon in medium microwave safe bowl at HIGH until spread is melted, about 30 seconds.
  4. Drizzle over cereal mixture; toss to coat. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet and bake, stirring once, until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in air-tight container.
*Becel® Gold in Quebec. Great as a snack, yogurt topping or with milk for a super breakfast. For a nut-free version, omit the almonds and sunflower seeds and increase the cereal and dried fruit by 1/4 cup (60 mL) each.
