This recipe is from Elk Creek Lodge in Meeker, CO. It is delicious served alone with milk, or mixed with other cereals, or over oatmeal.. Also delicious served with yogurt and fruit.

Pack this up for a hike, or kick back and snack during the game... either way this is simply de-lish!


In large bowl, toss oats, almonds, pecans (both chopped and halves) and wheat germ.
Whisk oil, maple syrup, canola oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour over oat mixture, and toss to coat well. Spread onto jelly roll pan, and put into preheated 350 oven for 5-7 minutes. Stir well and return to oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until toasted golden.
Remove from oven. Add cherries, apricots, and raisins. Toss together. Cool. Put into ziplock bags, or air tight container

I made your granola today. This is my first attempt at granola. I usually buy it and eat it with my Greek Yogurt. Well, I'll never buy it again!! This granola is wonderful!! The hint of maple flavor is just perfect. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
