3 cups rolled oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup unsalted cashews
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup chopped dried apricots

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.

Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins, dried cherries and apricots and mix until evenly distributed.

Store in an airtight container fitted with a tight fitting lid.

I use about 1/3 of cup of the granola with my yogurt in the morning for a quick and healthy way to start my day. I also add 2 sliced strawberries or some blueberries for more flavor.
