Ingredients:

2 cups oat flakes
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup slivered almonds
¼ cup flax seeds
1/3 cup vegetable oil
¼ cup honey
½ cup cubed dried apricots
½ cup cubed dried figs
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup roasted unsalted cashews

 

Preparation:

Preheat oven at 350°F.

Toss the oats, coconut, and almonds together in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in a small bowl. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 13 by 18 by 1-inch sheet pan. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, figs, cherries, cranberries, and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.
