Easy Granola Recipe

From Real Simple


I used dried cherries in this recipe, since I love their tart flavor, but feel free to use any dried fruit you'd like. This recipe is so versatile.

Recipe For Healthy Granola

    1/2 cup pure maple syrup
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  3. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Add the dried fruit, and toss to combine. Let cool.
