3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut flakes, unsweeteend
3 tablespoons flax seeds
1/2 cup toasted mixed nuts, chopped (I used almonds & walnuts)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons agave nectar maple syrup (can use honey & maple syrup here)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups mixed dried fruit (I used cranberries & blueberries)
Preheat the oven to 375. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the dried fruit. Stir well.
Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet, spreading it out into an even layer. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until desired brownness, stirring every 10 minutes.
Remove the granola from the oven and and cool completely, in its pan, on a wire wrack. Once the granola is cool, mix in the dried fruit. Eat plain for a snack, with milk for breakfast or mixed in with yogurt as an after dinner treat!
