I love home made granola, you can change the flavor to your liking and it is a great snack on its own or with a yogurt.

Ingredients

1 cup dried fruit (raisins, craisins, cherries, apricots)

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup shelled hemp seed (or flaxseed)

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

1 cup nuts of choice (slivered almonds, chopped walnuts)

1/4 cup wheat germ

3 cups rolled oats

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts, wheat germ and hemp seeds.

In a small pot slowly heat brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, salt, cinnamon and vanilla together. Heat until sugar is dissolved.

Pour over oat mixture and mix well. Lay granola on a large sheet pan. Sprinkle with a little water and smush handfuls with your hands.

Cook for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven and transfer to a bowl, add dried fruit and store in an airtight container.
