  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Combine the oats and all the dried fruits with a pinch of salt in a greased baking dish.
  • 3
    Pour the oil and honey over the oats mixture.
  • 4
    Mix with a wooden spoon to evenly distribute the oil and honey. Bake for 50 minutes.
  • 5
    Mix with the wooden spoon for the first 15 minutes, then again for the last 15 minutes to prevent it from burning. Cut the fruits you want to add into little pieces and mix in at the end.
  • 6
    Let cool when finished and store in glass jars to keep crunchy. Decorate the jars.
  • Once the granola browns you should wait until it’s cool to remove. If it’s still too loose when you’re done and you want it to be a little chunky, add a bit more honey or agave and bake for 5 extra minutes. When it’s cool you can break it into chunks with your hands.
