½ cup soy butter, sunflower butter, or other nut butter alternative
½ cup honey
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups dried fruit, such as raisins, currants, golden raisins, blueberries,
cranberries, or banana chips
* Preheat the oven to 300ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
* In a medium saucepan, combine the soy butter, honey, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. Place over low heat and stir until the mixture is smooth.
* In a medium bowl, combine the oats and salt. Add the wet mixture to the oats and stir well; use your hands if needed.
* Spread the granola mixture onto the prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the granola is lightly browned and toasted. Remove from the oven, cool on the sheet, and add the dried fruit. (The granola keeps for up to 1 week in an airtight container.)
