1/4cupoilI used Canola; Bittman recommends grapeseed or corn
2and 1/4 cups granolawhatever looks good to you, I used the plainest I could find
3/4cupwalnutschopped (granola and nuts combined should total 3 cups; adjust amounts to taste)
1and 1/2 cups dried peachesor other dried fruit
Using a food processor, combine the peaches and oil until smooth. Add water as necessary to achieve this. I felt like I needed to add a lot of water to get my peaches to form something close to smooth. I'll spare you the photo, because it doesn't look appetizing.
Warm the peach mixture in a small saucepan on the stove so that it becomes even softer.
Mix the granola and walnuts in a large bowl. Add the peach mixture a bit at a time and coat all the granola.
Press into an 8 or 9-inch square pan with your fingers. Trust me, I tried pressing them with the spatula and they did not stick together.
Cool in the refrigerator. Cut into squares and enjoy.
