4-1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup nuts or seeds (try a combo such as sunflower or sesame seeds and walnuts)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup assorted, chopped dried fruit such as apricots, apples or figs
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9 x 13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together oats, bran, germ, nuts and cinnamon. Blend honey, canola oil and juice. Add mixture to oats and stir until well coated.
Spread granola onto a baking sheet and cook 25 minutes, stirring a few times so that the granola browns evenly.
Remove from oven and let the granola cool on the baking sheet for ten minutes.
Add dried fruit when mixture cools. Store in an airtight container.
