In large microwaveable bowl, mix cereal and walnuts. In 2-cup microwaveable measuring cup, stir together oil, brown sugar and honey. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes. Add spices to sugar mixture and stir until combined. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered for 3 minutes, stirring and scraping bowl after every minute. Stir in apples, dried cranberries and raisins. Microwave uncovered for 1 minute. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, at least 15 minutes, and lightly sprinkle with salt to taste.
