INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 2 12
  • 2
    tablespoons fruit juice concentrate (any flavor will work, I use Welch's 100% Juice White Grape Peach)
  • 3
    tablespoons honey
  • 14
    cup pecans, chopped
  • 14
    cup dried fruit (I like Sun-maid brand Fruit Bits)
  • 14
    teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 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.
  • Place the oats in a large mixing bowl. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and stir quickly to coat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Store in an airtight container.
