Amazing Granola

I absolutely LOVE this granola recipe! It's super healthy and incredibly yummy.

3 cups rolled oats (I use certified gluten free, of course)
1.5 cups nuts/seeds (I use 1/4 c. hemp seeds, 1/2 c. raw sunflower seeds, & 3/4 c. slivered raw almonds - but you can use any combination you want)

Mix all of these ingredients together in a bowl.

In a saucepan, heat until melted through:
1/2 c. juice (I prefer cranberry or pomegranate)
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. cold-pressed coconut oil
1 T. vanilla extract
1 t. sea salt
1/2 t. cinnamon

Pour the liquid over the oat/nut/seed mixture and mix well. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 40 minutes. Your house will smell great while this is baking!

When the granola is done baking, break apart, and allow to cool and harden completely. Mix in 1.5 cups of dehydrated fruit (I highly recommend cranberries!).

Store in a ball jar and enjoy alone as a snack, with milk, or with yogurt for breakfast.
