  • Preheat the oven to 300˚F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts or seeds, cinnamon and salt. Add the coconut oil, honey and vanilla and stir again until the mixture is well combined.
  • Transfer the granola mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake until the granola is golden brown, stirring halfway through, about 30 minutes.
  • Allow the granola to cool completely, then stir in the dried fruit and any optional add-ins you’d like. Break the granola into smaller pieces and store in an airtight container.


*Serving size is 1/4 cup of granola.
