It is a sunny but cool November day, a perfect day to make granola.

This is my go-to gift for the holidays, but this batch is just for us!

The original recipe came from epicurious but I have adapted it to suit my taste.

Here is my version – enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a large roasting pan, mix 1/2 cup of melted butter (or canola oil or coconut oil) with 1/2 cup maple syrup.

Add 6 cups of old fashioned oats,

1 cup of whole pecans,

1 cup unsweetened coconut,

1/4 cup ground flaxseeds,

1 tablespoon cinnamon and

1 teaspoon vanilla.

Mix well.

Bake for 30-50 minutes, stirring frequently. When done baking, add 1 cup of dried blueberries (or cranberries or apricots). Let cool completely before storing in a container.
