the BEST Granola.  Ever.

I love yogurt, granola and fresh fruit – as breakfast, snack or anytime. Being frustrated with the high fat (and who knows what ingredients) in store-bought granolas, I blended elements of several recipes and came up with this fast, easy and most importantly, delicious homemmade granola. Enjoy!

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 325C.
  2. 2Mix dry ingredients. Set aside.
  3. 3In a small saucepan, melt honey, butter, brown sugar over low heat.
  4. 4When melted, toss with dry ingredients.
  5. 5Lay out on baking pan; bake for 15 minutes (or a bit longer if you like it drier and crunchier)
  6. 6Let cool. As it cools, mix in chopped dried fruit.
  7. 7Stores for 2 weeks in airtight container.
