Servings: 9

Yield: 6 cups

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups (385g) rolled oats

1/4 cup (30g) wheat bran

1/2 cup (60g) wheat germ

1/4 cup (30g) nuts or seeds (try a combo such as sunflower or sesame seeds and walnuts)

1/2 cup (120mL) honey

1/4 cup apple juice

1/2 cup (75g) assorted, chopped dried fruit such as apricots, apples or figs

2 Tbs (30mL) canola oil

2 tsp (4g) cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Coat a 9x13-inch (23x33cm) pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix together oats, bran, germ, nuts and cinnamon.

Blend honey, canola oil and juice. Add mixture to oats and stir until well-coated.

Spread granola onto a baking sheet and cook 25 minutes, stirring a few times so that granola browns evenly. Remove from oven and let the granola cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.

Add dried fruit when mixture cools. Store in an air-tight container.
