Dried Fruit Granola GF

This granola is so yummy! I have swapped out different kinds of dried fruits in this and some have been great and some have been interesting to say the least! Have you ever had dried cantaloupe? That's right, cantaloupe! Not a big fan really. It was strange and super sweet! Use whatever fruits fit you, your kiddos or your family best. A really good place to buy dried fruits is at the Neighbors Country Market in New Paris. They have loads!! Also, when it comes to GF oats, be sure you buy the ones that say GF on the label! Not all are GF!  Also, I use brown rice syrup (again, my good ole New Paris store) instead of using oil. Gives it some crunch with out the fat.  It is also a GF option and I personally enjoy it! Please use your creative freedom to make this with whatever fruits, nuts or seeds you would like. This by the way makes an amazing late night snack! Who needs milk?! Just fist it!


3 lbs Organic Rolled Oats
1 1/2 C Raw Honey
1 C brown rice  syrup
1 Tbs + 1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 C Sunflower seeds
2 C dried cranberries
2 C dried blueberries


Bake the oats dry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Mix all wet ingredients together. Add fruits and seeds to the baked oats. Pour the wet mixture over the top. Mix until fully coated and well mixed. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring every 3-5 minutes.  Let cool completely!
