I love this granola. It's not too sweet and has a nice citrus taste to it. It's great to give as gifts in a nice jar or plastic bag. My kids love to snack on it dry. Adapted from the Best of Bridge recipe book.

Yummy granola! The only change I made was to add the almonds in with the dried fruit at the end, just a personal preference. For the dried fruit I used cranberries, sultanas, raisins and goji berries. Mmm. Thanks Monica! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
This was quick and easy to make. For the dried fruit I used raisins, craisins and dried prunes, which sounds kind of odd, but it worked really well for me and my family. I especially liked theorange flavour which went well with all the dried fruit.
