Nuts, oats, spices, and dried fruit make up this breakfast mainstay. Layer the granola with yogurt, serve it with milk, or eat it plain.




  • Grease a 15x10x2-inch roasting pan and set the pan aside.

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, pecans, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well.

  • In another mixing bowl, stir together brown sugar, honey, water, oil, and vanilla. Add honey mixture to oat mixture, stirring to coat well. Spread mixture in prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in a 300 degree F oven about 1 hour or until browned and crisp, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool the granola completely in the roasting pan on a wire rack. Stir apricots, raisins, and currants into oat mixture. Store in an airtight container. Makes 6 cups.
