Pumpkin Seed, Coconut & Flax Granola

 

Ingredients

6 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup unsweetened coconut

1 cup pumpkin seeds

1 cup sunflower seeds, unsalted

1 cup flax seeds

3/4 cup olive oil or other vegetable oil

3/4 cup sweetener (honey, molasses, agave, maple syrup)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Combine oats, coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine oil, sweetener and vanilla. Pour the oil mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Spread the mixture evenly over an 11-by-14-inch jelly roll pan, and bake for 55-60 minutes until nicely golden brown. There is no need to stir. Let cool and place in air-tight containers. Granola can be frozen.
