Author Notes: Our Organic Yogurt, Home-Made Granola and Fruit Breakfast...Our weekday breakfast is a healthy combination of organic goat yogurt sprinkled with our home-made organic Maple Flavored Dried Fruit Granola. We change the fruit according to the season but the granola and yogurt remain the same. See the granola recipe on our blog @

Makes: 26 ounces
cups organic rolled oats
cup slivered almonds
cups of assorted dry fruits (raisins, figs, apricots, dates, cranberries, blueberries, etc.)
cup dark brown sugar
cup maple syrup
cup vegetable oil; peanut oil preferred
cup cashew pieces
- Preheat oven to 250* F.
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, salt and brown sugar. Add in the maple syrup and oil and mix thoroughly.
- Spread mixture thinly and evenly onto two cooking tins with sides about ½ inch high. Cook for 45 to 60 minutes stirring carefully every 15 minutes and inter-changing where the cooking tins are placed every time you stir. This will give you more even browning.
- Note: The granola is done when it has a nice tan color, not dark, and can be chewed easily. Remove trays from oven. Let granola cool; then mix in dried fruit and place in sealed plastic bags. It will keep for two weeks, unrefrigerated.
