Cherry Almond Granola

4 C old-fashioned rolled oats
1 to 11 C sweetened shredded coconut
2 C sliced or chopped almonds
1/4 C canola oil
1/3 C honey
2 tsp cinnamon
11 C dried cherries, chopped

Toss oats, coconut and almonds in a large bowl. Pour in the oil, honey and cinnamon and mix with a wooden spoon until everything is well-combined. Pour onto a large 12”x18” well-greased cookie sheet or 2 smaller cookie sheets. Bake at 350o for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oven and fold in the dried cherries. Cool, stirring occasionally. Transfer to an airtight container.
Yield: 9 to10 cups granola
Hint: Feel free to substitute other dried fruit for the cherries.
