- With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 28 x 20-cm (11 X 8-inch) baking dish with parchment paper, letting it hang over two sides. Butter the other two sides.
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, dried fruit, nuts, flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in the butter, milk, and vanilla with a wooden spoon.
- Spoon into the baking dish and press firmly. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the granola is golden brown. Let cool. Cut into bars in the pan and cool. Store in an airtight container.
Nut allergy: replace them with unsalted soy nuts.
