Oats are rich in water-absorbing soluble fiber. This type of fiber can be especially beneficial for diarrhea, as it absorbs excess water in the bowel, potentially providing diarrhea relief.
Wash Hands Wash hands and all cooking surfaces with soap and warm water before beginning.
Preheat Oven Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix Ingredients In a large bowl, mix together the oats, nuts, salt, and cinnamon. Drizzle the oil, honey, and vanilla over the oat mixture and stir until all ingredients are evenly coated.
Spread Granola Spread the granola into an even layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake Granola Bake until golden, about 12 minutes, stirring halfway through. The granola will not be crispy coming out of the oven. It will crisp as it cools.
Cool Granola Let the granola cool completely and then break in to pieces. Gently stir in the dried cherries. (If you’re feeling a little crazy, mix in some chocolate chips as well!)
Wash Dishes Wash dishes in hot, soapy water, sanitize cooking tools and surfaces, and thoroughly wash hands.
