Granola and Fruit

What You'll Need:

1 cup boiling water
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup sweetened dried cranberries
1 (6 oz) bag dried mixed tropical fruit
3 cups regular oats
½ cup sliced almonds
½ cup roasted sunflower kernels
¼ cup flaked sweetened coconut
2 tbsp non-fat dry milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine water, sugar, cranberries and tropical fruit, mix well and let stand for about 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine oats and other ingredients and mix together with the dried fruit mixture. Spread out evenly on a baking pan and bake for an hour. Give the mixture a quick stir every 15 minutes. Let the granola cool off and place in an airtight container.
