Homemade granola

Homemade granola warm from the oven is pure heaven, this recipe is really simple and you can add whatever nuts or dried fruit you want.This recipe makes a lot of granola however once made it can be kept for up to a month.
300g oats
4 tbsp apple sauce ( I used apple juice!)
4 tbsp runny honey
1 tbsp maple/golden syrup
3 tbsp oil
60g brown sugar
60g mixed nuts (I used pecans, almonds and chopped hazelnuts)
100g dried fruit (I used raisins and sultanas)

Preheat the oven to 170 c/ 160c fan.

Combine all the ingredients apart from the dried fruit, making sure all the oats are well coated in oil, syrup and honey. Spread the granola onto a lined baking tray shaking the tray gently to ensure there is a range of clumps and small bits.
Put the tray in the oven and bake for 20-25 mins stirring/jiggling the tray every 5 minutes to ensure the granola browns evenly.
Take out the granola an stir in any dried fruit you want to add.
Leave to cool completely and use on yoghurt, in cookies,muffins or with muesli.
