Ingredients

    1/2 c maple syrup
    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!

    This is amazing! I made some substitutions based on ingredients on hand including coconut butter for the coconut oil. I also baked it on top of a sheet of parchment paper which worked great. I ended up with 248 calories per half cup, definitely worth it! - 5/8/10

    Didn't make this, but plan to. Don't know what chia seeds are -have to figure that out. For those who don't like coconut or anything having to do with it - if you allergic to it then fine. But trust me - if you use coconut OIL your food will not taste like coconut and it's SO GOOD FOR YOU. - 3/26/10

    I made a version of this, chia seeds I use a bit of clove(small amount). Almonds, sunflower seeds and pecans, chopped, dried dates, two kinds of raisens and dried cherries and cranberries. I also used sf syrup. It turned out great and even the guys at my dh work want me to make them some as well. - 3/10/10
