In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, extracts, and salt until they're evenly combined.
In a large bowl, toss together the maple syrup mixture with the oats and rice cereal. Spread the mixture out onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, so your granola cooks evenly. When you stir, make sure that the oats around the perimeter of your pan get pushed to the middle, because otherwise they will burn. Let the cooked granola cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
Toss the cooled granola together with the sprinkles. Store in an airtight container in the pantry until you're ready to eat.
It is so important that you spread the oats out evenly and stir them every 15 minutes. The oats on the outside will cook faster, so moving things around makes a huge difference in your results.The cooked granola will keep for about a week in the pantry.
