    Granola Mix:
    3 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
    3 tbsp ground flax seed
    1/2 cup chopped pecans (you can also use almonds or walnuts)
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1 tbsp brown sugar
    1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
    1 tbsp vegetable oil (I used Grapeseed Oil)
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp salt

    Dried Tropical Fruit Mix:
    ~ 1/4 c Pineapple, chopped
    ~ 1/2 c Mango, chopped
    5 Medjool Dates, chopped
    (Use about 1 cup dried fruit of your choice. I also suggest raisins, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, banana chips, coconut, papaya)


Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the granola using two large spoons. To create clusters, use your hands to squeeze the mixture together.

Spread the granola mix onto the prepared sheet pan in one layer. Toast in the oven at 325°F for 25 minutes until the granola is crisp and brown. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan.

Mix in the dried tropical fruits. Store in airtight jars for up to two weeks.
