2 cups organic old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup un-sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup of mix of pepitas or pumpkin seeds or pecans or sunflower seeds
3/4 cup of dried cherries (chopped) or raisins or cranberries ….add after baking
1/4 cup of coconut oil
2 generous tbsp of local honey
1 tsp of ground cinnamon

- Toss the oats with coconut, almonds and other seeds/nuts in a bowl. Add the coconut oil, honey and cinnamon . Mix until all is coated with the liquids.
- Pour onto a sheet pan. Bake, stirring frequently with a spatula, until the mixture turns an even golden brown, about +/- 25 minutes. Be sure to stir and watch carefully as it can burn very easily.
- Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the dried fruit and mix.
- Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.
**Have for breakfast or any meal. Serve with fresh avocado. Or dress up fresh fruit with your granola and add plain yogurt for a healthy dessert. Add quality dark chocolate chips for a more decadent experience!
