Rose’s Light Nut and Dried Fruit Granola

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 35 mins

From Rose Reisman. "If you prefer to have dried fruit that is baked, add it to the granola mixture before it goes into the oven. It makes the fruit much chewier. If you want the granola crisper, leave it in the oven with the heat off for another two hours. Feel free to substitute any dried fruit of your choice."

Great granola, easy recipe, super flavor. I liked that it came together and made clusters. I used pecans and dried cranberries. Will try apricots and almonds next time. I think I baked it a little too long, it was a little dark and extra crunchy. Next time I will watch closer and reduce baking time.

Great flavor! I did make one change. I discovered that I was out of maple syrup, so subbed raspberry syrup. I loved it! I used walnuts for the nuts. Thanks Redsie! Made for Zaar tag.
