7 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)

This is not only a great snack on the trail, but also a jump-start breakfast when served with milk or yogurt.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine applesauce, honey, oil, cinnamon, and ginger in a small saucepan, and cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until honey is melted, stirring occasionally. Pour applesauce mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat. Place mixture in a jelly-roll pan, and bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Gently stir granola, and bake an additional 15 minutes or until dry. Cool; stir in apricots and cranberries. Store in an airtight container.

I use unsweetened puffed wheat, no sugar added applesauce and increase the cinnamon and ginger by about 50%. The baking temp in the recipe is too high in my oven. I reduce the temp to 325 and use convection bake. I eat this for breakfast with plain yogurt almost everyday and think it is plenty sweet enough with the dried fruits.
