Granny’s old-fashioned apple granola

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15–20 minutes

4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup unsweetened dried apples, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, coconut, and walnuts. In a small saucepan, stir together brown sugar, oil, and honey over low heat until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour honey mixture over oats mixture and toss well. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and spread oat mixture evenly over the sheet. Place in the oven. Bake for approximately 15–20 minutes until granola is golden brown, stirring contents every 3 minutes to toast mixture evenly. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Stir in chopped dried apples.
