Favorite Granola

Katie Daar - I use dried cranberries and almonds for my fruit and nuts, but you can use whatever! Then I only cook it for 7-10 minutes at the end because I like mine chewier! They're super yummy!

Serves 10people
Ingredients
2
cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1
cup sliced almonds
1
cup shredded coconut, loosely packed
1/2
cup toasted wheat germ
3
tbsp unsalted butter
2/3
cup honey
1/4
cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2
tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4
tsp kosher salt
1/2
cup chopped pitted dates
1/2
cup chopped dried apricots
1/2
cup dried cranberries
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 12-inch baking dish and line it with parchment paper.
2.
Toss the oatmeal, almonds, and coconut together on a sheet pan and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the wheat germ.
3.
Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
4.
Place the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for a minute, then pour over the toasted oatmeal mixture. Add the dates, apricots, and cranberries and stir well.
5.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Wet your fingers and lightly press the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool for at least 2 to 3 hours before cutting into squares. Serve at room temperature.
