Homemade Cinnamon, Fruit and Nut Granola

**Hopefully my internet will be fixed today, but I shall still keep my fingers crossed!! I did get a nice refund for the days without service!! **

I thought I would keep on the roll of the thrifty tips I have been giving by sharing one of my favorite snacks!! This served on yogurt is to die for!!

Homemade Granola
* 4 cups rolled oats
* 2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut
* 2 cups sliced almonds
* 1/2 cup cashews
* 1/2 cup light olive oil
* 2/3 cup honey
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 cup dried cherries
* 1 cup dried cranberries or raisins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Toss the oats, coconut, almonds and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in a small bowl. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 13 by 18 by 1-inch sheet pan. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 45 minutes.
Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add cherries, cranberries, and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.
