Made this granola last week, and have been having it for breakfast and snack, really enjoyed it!

Instead of 1/3 cup of pecans, I added 1/2 cup of each chopped almonds and walnuts. For the dried berries, I used 1/4 cup of each dried apricots, cranberries and prunes. The combination was excellent.

I usually have the granola with plain low-fat yogurt with a bit of maple syrup or applesauce to add extra sweetness. Filling, nutritious and delicious!
