Yields about 6 cups
3 cups rolled oats

¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup canola oil
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, cherries or sliced apricots
Preheat oven to 250 F.
In large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut and brown sugar.
In another bowl, combine maple syrup, oil and salt. Add to oat mixture and stir until well combined. Transfer to two baking sheets in a single layer and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir mixture every 20 minutes or so to achieve even browning.
