Maple Coconut & Fruit Granola

Homemade granola is the best!

It's healthy, crunchy and a little sweet. In other words...the perfect snack.

Eat it with a banana (I actually use the banana), in yogurt, on ice cream or by the handful.

Best of only takes minutes to throw together.

Maple Coconut & Fruit Granola

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup dried pineapple, chopped
1/4 cup dried mixed berries
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
2 tbsp warm water
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 275*. Spray 13 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray.

Mix oats, wheat germ, salt, almonds and coconut in a medium bowl.

In a small saucepan over medium, heat syrup, oil, water and vanilla to a simmer. Drizzle over oat mixture and stir to combine. Pour mixture into prepared pan and working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps. Bake for 25 minutes. Stir in dried fruit and continue to bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Let cool. Can be stored in an airtight container for 1 month.

Very slightly adapted from Pan Anderson's cookbook....which is awesome by the way. You can find it here.
