granola

Preheat oven to 325F. In a medium bowl mix together
3 cups large flake oats (long cooking)
1 cup ground flax seed
1/2 raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews

in a pyrex measuring cup mix together
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons + 1 tsp apple juice
3 tablespoons + 1 tsp liquid honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
dash salt
microwave 10 seconds, stir, and add to the oat mixture. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake 30 minutes, until dry, or until you can clearly smell the toasted oats and cinnamon.

Remove from your oven and sprinkle with
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup dried mango, chopped
1 handful dried currents
Turn the oven off and put the pan back in for 5 minutes of to avoid gooiness from the fruit. Let cool and do as I do, store it in a plastic bag twisted and tied shut like a bellybutton.
