Ingredients

    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

Directions

Mix maple syrup, coconut oil and almond butter together. If your coconut oil is at room temperature, you might need to melt it first.
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!
