1/2 c honey
1/4 c coconut oil
1/4 c almond butter
1 T cinnamon (or more if you prefer your granola to have a stronger cinnamon flavor)
2 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/4 c ground flax
1/4 c chia seeds
1/2 c chopped nuts/seeds (almonds, walnuts, pepitas)
1/4 c unsweetened coconut
1/2 c mixed dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, raisins)
liberal sprinkle coarse salt
Mix oats, coconut, and cinnamon together, then add to wet ingredients.
Pour onto a baking sheet in an even layer. (I use a silicone baking sheet liner, but you can coat the pan with nonstick cooking spray if you prefer.) Bake at 300 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. I like my granola to be somewhat "raw."
Immediately upon removing the granola from the oven, add the chia, flax, seeds/nuts and dried fruit. (The fruit swells and gets sticky in the oven, and raw nuts/seeds retain more of their nutrition.) Add a sprinkle of kosher salt and toss well. The salt really brings out the sweetness and other flavors.
Makes 15 1/4-cup servings!
