GORP (Ugly name, but really tasty food!)

To satisfy more than one craving, try this Gorp recipe adapted from Cooking Light (Gorp stands for "good, old-fashioned raisins and peanuts")

Peanut Butter, Granola Gorp

Makes 3.5 cups
Serving size: open handful (1.5 Tbsp)
Serves: 9
· 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
· 1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
· 1 cup low-fat granola with raisins (such as Kellogg's Low-fat Granola with Raisins)
· 32 tiny fat-free pretzels, broken into small pieces

· Cooking spray
· 1/2 cup dried cherries
· 1/2 cup 50% less sugar Craisins

Preheat oven to 300°.
Combine peanut butter and syrup in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high 30 seconds or until hot; stir well. Place granola and pretzels in a large bowl; pour peanut butter mixture over granola mixture, stirring to coat. Spread mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 300° for 15 minutes, stirring twice. Stir in cherries and cranberries; return pan to oven. Turn oven off; cool mixture in closed oven 30 minutes. Remove from oven; cool completely. Crumble apart and store in sealed container or zip-top bag.
