Preheat oven to 325 F.

Combine all dry ingredients into a large bowl.

In small saucepan heat all liquid ingredients and salt until it simmers.

Pour liquid over dry ingredients and stir until well mixed.

Spread a layer on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. The recipe should take two cookie sheets.

Bake 15-20 min and stir several times to prevent burning, until golden brown. Turn oven down to 275 if necessary.

After removing from oven toss with any dried fruits you like (dried pineapple, mango, papaya, cranberries, yogurt covered raisins, etc).
