I have been meaning to make granola for awhile. It's a good snack and can usually be made with ingredients you have on hand.

Adam ate most of the granola from this recipe. He loves it with yogurt and a sliced banana. I actually like to eat it plain. I have to make more very soon!

2 1/2 cups oats
3/4 cup slivered almonds or chopped pecans
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup dried fruit - I used golden raisin - cherries or crasins would be good
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and coated with non-stick spray.

Toast oats, almonds, cinnamon and salt together in a large skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 7-8 minutes.

Combine dried fruit, coconut and brown sugar in a large bowl; add toasted oat mixture.

Stir syrup into oat mixture and mix well.

Spread granola onto prepared baking sheet; bake 7 minutes, stir, bake 7 minutes more.

Let cool on baking sheet and store in air tight container.
