Cherry-Nut Granola

Fried Oysters
5 cups

Made from nature's basics -- grains, nuts, and fruits -- homemade granola is healthy, tasty, and easy to prepare.


  • ¼ cup apple juice

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • ½ cup whole almonds, coarsely chopped

  • ½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped

  • ½ cup dried cherries

  • ¼ cup dried currants


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together apple juice, honey, brown sugar, canola oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until combined. Add oats, almonds, and pecan; toss until mixture is well combined and evenly moistened. Divide mixture between 2 baking sheets and transfer to oven. Bake, shaking pans occasionally, until light golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.

  3. Transfer warm granola to a large bowl and stir in cherries and currants. Let cool completely; store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
