"I like to have a batch of granola on hand during the hectic holidays. It makes a great portable snack with lots of fiber and is also good served on yogurt or reduced-fat ice cream." --Jennifer Sransky, Birmingham, Alabama
2 3/4 cups regular oats
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup coarsely chopped dried apricots
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup butter, melted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine oats, almonds, and next 4 ingredients (through raisins) in a medium bowl. Combine honey and butter. Drizzle honey mixture over oat mixture; toss to coat.

I never made my own granola before this, but decided to give this recipe a try. i came out great. i have substituted walnuts for pecans at times and added chopped dates. Gotta have the dried cherries! Do not leave this in the oven one second longer than stated in the recipe. It will get overdone.
I would recommend spraying the pan with cooking spray (mine got baked on), and reducing temp or cooking time by at least 5 minutes. I was not terribly impressed. CL has other granola recipes that I have liked better.
