Warm Cinnamon Granola

There are about a billion ready made granola/muesli mixes out there, but once you have custom made a mix to your own tastes, you can never go back to shop bought. Feel free to experiment with the nut and fruit combos - just try and stick approximately to the overall proportions given here. Try it warm from the oven with real Greek yoghurt and honey....amazing.....it won't replace a bacon sandwich though!

Jumbo oats - 300g
Soft brown sugar - 80g
Ground cinnamon - 1.5 tsp
Ground ginger - 0.5 tsp
Salt - 0.5 tsp
Honey - 3 tbsp
Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp
Mixed dried fruit such as blueberries, cranberries, sultanas, apricots, mango etc - 1 large handful 
Blanched mixed nuts such as brazils, peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts - 300g

Heat the oven to 150c. Mix all the dry ingredients (not the fruit) well in a large bowl and the transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 30 mins stirring every 10 mins or so until uniformly light golden. Allow to cool and add the fruit.
