Submitted by: SUMMERSUN9


Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    4 cups rolled oats
    1/2-3/4 cup chopped walnuts
    1/4 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded (optional)
    1/4 cup sunflower and or sesame seeds
    1/4 up brown sugar (optional, can increase honey by 1.4 cup to substitute)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3/4 - 1 cup apple juice concentrate
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil (optional)
    4 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
    1/3 cup dried blueberries or cranberries
    1/3 cup dates or raisins
    1/3 cup thinly sliced dried apricots

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F

In large mixing bowl, stir together oats, nuts, coconut, seeds, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon.

In a small bowl, mix apple juice, oil, honey, and vanilla extract. Use a whisk and whip honey into juice mixture until totally dissolved.

Drizzle juice mixture over the cereal and stir to coat evenly.
Spread the mixture onto a large baking sheet with sides. For even baking, be sure the granola is not more than 1 inch thick. Bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 5 to 7 minutes.

Add the dried fruit and bake an additional 5 minutes. The granola should be crisp and golden. Do not overcook after adding the fruit to prevent the fruit from hardening. Let cool

Store granola in seated container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Serve the granola with tofu, soy or nonfat milk and top with additional fresh fruit if desired. Makes 5 cups.
