Preheat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit.

This is so easy! In a large mixing bow add all of the ingredients except the honey and raisins. Mix together until you can see that the turmeric has covered the dry ingredients. You'll notice that it's evenly spread because the spice usually leaves a yellow tint.

Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add the honey and stir. You can even use clean hands to make sure all of the cereal is coated.

Pour the mix onto a large baking sheet and pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes. You can flip it at about the 7 minutes mark if you want to but you don't have to.

Take it out of the oven and let it cool completely. Stir in the dried cranberries. Store it in a tupperware or airtight container.
