I use a combination of dried fruit blend from Aldi's. (It is the cheapest place I have found to buy it along with bags of raw almonds and the oats...It has blueberries, cherries, strawberries, & cranberries. This recipe can be a little pricey but it is so worth it :) Have you checked the price of handmade granola out there??? I have seen it for about a cup's worth $6 or 7... Make your own :) . But use whatever you like, Trader Joe's has blends of all kinds of dried fruit which are good too. You can use apricots, dried apples, raisins other kinds of nuts anything works, my philsospy is use what you have :)...
Please be careful when you cook this. It can burn very easily. Keep stirring every 5-10 minutes, but in the last bit of baking stir every 5 minutes. You want the granola to be golden brown not burnt,which trust me I have burnt it before and had to throw the entire batch away. Which is no fun.....If your oven runs hot cook at 300 not 325...
This is good on yogurt, ice cream or just plain.
