I created this recipe out of necessity. I don't really like many of the commercial granolas out there. Cafe Fanny Granola is pretty good, but can be expensive and isn't sold everywhere. Of course, the add-ins of chocolates and cherries can easily be changed to whatever you like (i.e. raisins, dried apples, dried apricots, dates, toasted coconut, candied ginger, etc.).

2 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons coffee creamer
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pecans - chopped
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup apple juice, frozen concentrat - thawed
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup cherries - dried

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl , combine oats, flour, non-dairy creamer, sesame seeds, pecans, lemon zest, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well, add the apple juice concentrate, oil, and hot water. Mix thoroughly. Thinly spread the mixture in a shallow baking pan and bake until dry and toasted, stirring occasionally (40-45 minutes). Pour into a large bowl and let cool. Add chocolate chips and dried cherries. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
