Makes about 12 Cups
Preheat the over to 300 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites through maple syrup. Dump in the almonds, coconut, cereal and oats and gently fold together until the mixture is evenly coated.
Pour the mixture onto the parchment lined baking sheet and spread out into an even layer. Bake at 300 degree, stirring every 10 minutes for a total of 30 to 40 minutes or until the cereal is toasted. It still may appear a bit wet, that's OK! It will crisp up as it cools.
Allow the mixture to cool completely, at least 30 minutes. Once the mixture is cool, add the craisins, yogurt raisins and M&M's and gently fold together. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
