Homemade Granola clusters with Dried Fruit
Yummy and chewy these granola clusters are perfect snacks before, during and after school!!
- 3 oz butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 2/3 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cups dried shredded coconut
- 1 cup dried cherries
- 1 cup dried blueberries
- 1 cup plain granola
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a mini muffin pan lightly with nonstick spray.
Place the butter, brown sugar and maple syrup into a large sized pot and stir until melted.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well until combined and the mixture will stay like a snowball when picked up and squeezed.
Using a scoop or your fingers press enough of the mixture into each spot in the muffin pan and lightly press down. It should be level with the top of the pan.
Repeat until the pan is full and bake in the oven for about 15-17 minutes.
Let cool for five minutes before carefully popping each cluster out of the holes and placing them on a cooling wire or baking tray.
Repeat until all of the mixture has been used up.
To make these as bars, spray a 13x9 baking pan and line with parchment paper. Adjust the baking time to 20-25 minutes.
Let cool slightly and slice with a heavy sharp knife.
