Granola absolute favorite topping for a vanilla yogurt.  It gives a special crunch and texture with just the right amount of sweetness.


2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup coconut
1 cup almonds
1 cup cashew nut/ walnut
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dried fruit ( raisins, cranberries, blueberries, dried apricots)


Preheat oven to 350.

In a small pot, melt the butter, honey, brown sugar. Set aside,

In a large bowl combine the nuts and oats, cinnamon powder and salt. Slowly pour in the liquid mixture. Stir till well combined.  Spread on a baking tray and bake for aproximately 20 minutes.  Do check as oven temperature varies.  Once the granola has turned golden brown, take it out and mix in the dried fruits.  Cool completely before storing.
