In a small saucepan combine the brown sugar, honey, oil, cinnamon and salt. Whisk together over low heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture over the oats and toss to coat.
Spread the mixture on a 1/2 sheet pan or 2 13” x 9” pans and bake for a total of 30 minutes. At 10 minute intervals stir the mixture so that is bakes evenly.
Remove from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack to cool.
When the granola is completely cool add the chopped cherries.
