Crunchy Maple Fruit & Nut Granola

Lori Ann


I tried a bunch of granola recipes and came up with this combination which is by far my favorite. Other nuts and dried fruit can be substituted but the coconut, pecans and dates just work so well together with the maple I just make this one all the time.
