Nice tasty granola! I made half of a batch and I really liked the addition of the vanilla. I probably added a little more cinnamon than called for. I didn't add the dried fruit but did mix in a few mini chocolate chips. Great with milk, yogurt, and just plain - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013
