  3. Mix cranberries, nuts and seeds in a large mix bowling, then add toasted millet, quinoa and oats.

Notes
* For peanut butter I used Peanut Butter and Company The Bee's Knees. It is delicious. If you use regular peanut butter add 1 teaspoon of honey to the mixture.
*I used Drip Amber Maple Syrup. Again try to use a natural product.
