    Diet It Up's Note:

    Granola is inherently thought of as "health food" but when you flip over the bag and read the nutritional info, it can actually be very high in calories. This is my slimmed-down version. I use sugar-free maple syrup since that's all I keep in the house, but regular maple syrup would work perfectly fine. Sprinkle the finished product on ice cream, fresh fruit or yogurt.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan, heat the juice, honey and maple syrup over medium heat until you can stir the mixture easily, but before it starts to boil. About 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Place the oats in a large mixing bowl. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and stir quickly to coat.
    4. 4
      Spread the oats in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake until the granola is crisp and starts to brown. About 15 minutes. Watch it carefully, or the granola may burn.
    5. 5
      Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack and while the granola is still warm, toss in the pecans and dried fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon and finish cooling on the baking sheet.
    6. 6
      Store in an airtight container.

      I love this! Going to search for other recipes too but have been making this for weeks. I do prefer the nuts toasted along with the oats. I add in lots of items. I am up to adding dried papaya & pineapple half way through cooking. I like to add pumpkin seeds, goji berries, cocoa nibs and unsweetened coconut flakes. yum. I dont drink juice so I found the realfruit mango popsicles can be sub for juice concentrate. Enjoy~
