1 cup pretzels
3 cups dried fruit
2 cups prepared granola
1 cup chocolate chips
¼ cup olive oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup water
¼ cup brown sugar

You can prepare soy nuts at home by simply soaking soybeans in water for about 12 hours. Drain the beans then spread on a single layer on a cookie sheet.Roast them for just over an hour at 350° for about 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Salt to taste before they cool. Yields about 1 cup of roasted beans from 2 cups of raw beans.To prepare the granola, heat the oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the granola, olive oil, honey, water, brown sugar and cinnamon. Make sure the granola is well coated. Then spread the granola mixture on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Be sure to stir every so often to prevent from sticking. After removing from the oven, set aside to cool.After the granola and soybeans have cooled, combine everything else in a large bowl and store in an airtight container.
