Makes about 5 cups
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3 tbsp packed brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup assorted dried fruit*
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Mix first 7 ingredients in large bowl. Stir honey and oil in saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture; toss. Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, about 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Place sheet on rack. Stir granola; cool. Mix in fruit.
I omitted the dried fruit from my granola. Dried fruit contains a lot of sugar. I use the granola in my parfaits, yogurt, desserts, and muffin toppings. I opt to use fresh fruit.
Can be made 1 week ahead. Store in airtight container.
