Homemade Granola!

I took this from a basic granola recipe, and added fruits/nuts to make it sort of "tropical". It's really tasty, but it did not stick together as well as I would have hoped; so next time, I'm upping the oil just a little bit...

In a bowl, mix together:

4 c. oats
1 c. pistachios
1/2-1 c. dried fruits (I did some dried pineapple and mango)
1/2 c. coconut
1/3 c. oil (next time? 1/2 cup)
1/3 c. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 dashes of ginger
Spread out onto a cookie sheet, in an even layer.

Bake at 350* for 30 minutes. Cool, and eat with milk, or on top of yogurt. (YUMMY!)
