I used this recipe as a starting point and loosely followed it for some of the best granola I've made yet. I've been trying different recipes and I think I'll stick with this one. I used a little less than a TBSP of oil, since I don't like the oily taste at all. I added 1/8c each of wheat germ and flax seed to the oats when I toasted them. Spread them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper while I melted the butter, honey and brown sugar. I added a total of 1.5c of dry ingredients about a minute before I took the granola off the stove (1/2c cherries, 1/4c golden raisins, 1/4 dates, 1/4 sunflower seeds, 1/4 slivered almonds). Then I spread the entire mixture back out on the parchment paper and put it in a 275 degree oven for a few minutes. Turned the oven off and left it in there for about 10 more minutes. Left to cool and it dried in nice clusters. This is a great recipe and I can't wait to make it with other dried fruit/nut combos.
