Easy to make. I used 6 C multi grain Chex, 3 C reg. Cheerios, 1 1/2 C dried pineapple (didn't have banana) and 1 C peanuts. Didn't have dried orange peel and cut the cloves in half. Next time I would use the banana pcs instead of the pineapple. The pineapple got very chewy in the oven! I baked it on two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and slid the paper off the sheets after baking to let cool. Baked for 1 hr.
