Christmas spice granola

A generously spiced granola mix for Christmas, full of healthy goodness.

Dry mix;
4 cups rolled oats, preferably organic. That also goes for all the following ingredients as well.
1 cup of coconut flakes
1 cup approx., mixed nut and seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts…)

Wet mix;
1/3 cup of coconut oil
½ cup of honey. I don’t bother with raw honey here, seeing as it will be cooked anyway
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
¼ cup of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 -2 teaspoons ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground
½ teaspoon of sea salt

After cooking;
1 cup approx, mixed dried fruit (raisins, cranberries…)

1. Preheat oven to 315F convection (if you don’t have convection oven, 325F regular oven) In a large bowl, mix together oats, coconut & nuts. Set aside.

2. In a small saucepan, combine oil, honey, & cocoa powder and spices. Bring to a gentle boil & remove immediately from heat. Stir in vanilla.

3. Drizzle syrup over oat mixture; mix well.

4. Bake 12min, stir, 12min again. Depending on your oven, it may take a little more or less time. Granola is done when it’s fairly dry.

5. Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Mix in dried fruit.

* Best made in dry weather! Rainy weather may give you damp granola.
