Bradley's Granola

This is some of the yummiest moist granola I've had in a long time. It's simple to make and takes only 20 minutes.  I like to top the granola with a dollop of yogurt (rather than add milk) to enjoy the flavors and texture. (Alternatively you can use the granola to top a bowl of fresh fruit and yogurt, or build a fruit parfait as in the photo below). Enjoy!
Bradley's Granola
6 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup bran
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups chopped nuts (e.g. pecan, almonds)
1 cup coconut (optional)

1 cup agave nectar (or honey)
½ cup oil

2 cups dried fruit bits (e.g. apricot, cranberry)

Mix first 6 dry ingredients in large bowl.
Heat agave nectar and oil and blend well.

Pour agave/oil mixture over dry mixture and mix well.
Spread into well-greased sheet pan.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Stir 2 times while baking.
Add dry fruit.
Let cool and store in airtight container.

{mahalo to BBI for sharing the recipe!}
