I turned on Food Network this morning and Giada was making granola.  I love granola.  She used Cranberry Juice which I'd never seen before and thought, "Wow, that looks good".  So, I made granola.  I think I've eaten about half of it so far.  This is a chewy granola, not overly crunchy.  YUM!

Cranberry Nut Granola

1/2 c. unsweetened cranberry juice
1/3 c. pure maple syrup
2/3 c. light brown sugar
2 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. sliced almonds
1 c. pecan pieces
1 c. dried cranberries
1 tbsp. cinnamon

Heat juice, syrup and brown sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and juice thickens a bit.  Pour over oats, nuts, cranberries and cinnamon.  Bake 325 for about 20 minutes, stirring about half way through.  Allow to cool.
