Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together all ingredients except dried fruit.  Spread evenly across a cookie sheet.  Bake, stirring every 5 minutes or so, until oats turn a golden brown.  Remove from the oven and mix in dried fruit. Cover with paper towels and press down.  Allow granola to cool.  Can store in an air tight container for a week.  If storing longer, store in the freezer for the freshest taste.
