The word granola suggests healthy, but many granolas and granola bars are anything but, often carrying a hefty fat and calorie load for their size. These homemade granola bars are dense, sweet and full of whole grains. Enjoy them as part of a healthy breakfast, or pack one in your child's lunch box.

2 cups oats
1 cup cereal
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup dried mixed fruit
