Great basic granola recipe with lots of flexibility. To make 1/2 a recipe, you need 4 cups oats, 1-1/2 c. wheat and/or oat bran, 1/2 cup honey and/or maple syrup, 2 cups of nuts and/or sunflower seeds, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 c. vegetable, coconut or other oil, 1/2 Tbs cinnamon, 1/2 Tbs vanilla and 1 cup dried fruit. Add 1/4 cup of brown sugar to taste. I generally use honey rather than maple syrup since I couldn't detect any maple flavor and the honey is much cheaper. Also I cannot recommend some of the water-based substitutions I've seen in other reviews such as applesauce, water and maple flavor (??) - you are making many servings of granola and the oil fills an important purpose.
