Breakfast Granola

Try this sweet and crunchy granola sprinkled over Greek yogurt or served as cereal with milk.
This is a great way to clean out your pantry so use whatever nuts and dried fruits you have.
This recipe makes a lot (10 cups) but if you store it in an airtight container in a cool dry place it will keep for up to two months.
Enjoy!
