3 1/2 cups of rolled oats and/or other flaked grains
1/2    cup of oil
1/2    cup of honey
3/4    cup of apple juice, cider, or apple juice concentrate
1 tsp  vanilla
1 tsp  cinnamon
dried fruit:  any fruits in any combination

Combine all of the dry ingredients except the fruit.  Bring the apple juice and honey to a simmer, and mix well into the mixture.

Spread onto a cookie sheet (or sheets) and bake 50 - 60 minutes at 250 degrees, mixing and turning every 10 minutes.  It should be a light brown when it's done - be VERY CAREFUL not to overcook, or it will have a burned taste.

Remove from the tray and mix in the dried fruit.
