Tita's Granola Mix

3 cups rolled oats (uncooked)
½ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
½ cup sliced or chopped almonds
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup chopped cashews
½ cup pumpkin or flax seeds
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cranberries
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup honey
¼ cup cane syrup

Preheat oven to 250°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 two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Spread the mixture evenly over the parchment paper. Place the cookie sheets in the oven to bake. Every 15 minutes, toss the granola so that it cooks evenly. Bake for a total of 75 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.
