400g old-fashioned rolled oats
150g sweetened shredded coconut
150g flaked almonds
180ml vegetable oil
120ml good honey
115g small diced dried apricots
150g small diced dried figs
150g dried cherries
150g dried cranberries
150g roasted, unsalted cashews
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Toss the oats, coconut and almonds together in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in another small bowl.

2) Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 33cm by 45cm by 2.5cm deep baking tray. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 45 minutes.

3) Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, figs, cherries, cranberries and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.
