Preheat oven to 300℉ (150℃). In a large bowl, add the first eleven ingredients, and mix until well combined.

The dry ingredients we need.
Here we have all the dry ingredients together.

Add the oil, applesauce and maple syrup or honey into dry ingredients, and stir until well combined. Use you hand to mix both dry and wet ingredients together until well incorporated, and no dry ingredients can be found.

Pour the oil into the well mixed dry ingredients.
Pour the maple syrup.

Spread mixture evenly between two baking sheets and bake, turning mixture frequently about every 15 minutes and rotating pans until the mixture is dry, golden and slightly brown, which takes about 1 hour or longer.

Stir the wet and dry ingredients together until well combined.
Spread mixture evenly between two baking sheets.

Stir in the dried fruit right away when the granola comes out of the oven.

About 1 hour or so, prepare all the dried fruits we need.
Mix well all the dried fruits together in a bowl.
Add half of the dried fruits into each baking sheet.
Stir until well combined.

Transfer baking sheets on wire racks. Allow to cool completely. Store in an air-tight container up to 1 month.

Let cool on the sheets completely.
I had it as my breakfast this morning.
