Tita's Granola Mix

Ingredients:
2 cups rolled oats (uncooked)
1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup flax seeds
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cranberries

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300°F.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together, except for the cranberries. Add the oil and syrup to the mixture and toss well so that all the dry ingredients are thoroughly coated. Line a cookie sheets with parchment paper. Spread the mixture evenly over the parchment paper. Place the cookie sheet in the oven to bake. Every 15 minutes, toss the granola so that it cooks evenly. Bake for a total of 45 minutes, until everything is a golden brown. Allow to cool completely. Add dried cranberries and mix thoroughly. Store the granola in an airtight container.

Tips: Experiments with other sweeteners (agave, honey, raw or brown sugar), oils, seeds, nuts, spices and dried fruits. Honey and sugars may make the granola clump and it is easy to burn, so watch the temperature. Keep the ratio to about 6 cups of dried ingredients to 1 cup of wet ingredients for best results. Add dried fruits after the granola has cooled. Serve with yogurt or milk, with fresh fruit, or just eat it plain as a snack.
