crunchy granola recipe

Sometimes, if I can make it easily, I can't bring myself to buy it in the store. Thought I'd try to make some granola this week...so I did!

1.5 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup raw pistachios
1/4 cup chopped, raw almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/6 cup raw pepitas
1 tablespoon flax seeds 1 teaspoons ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 cup currants
1/4 cup dried cranberries

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine dry ingredients (except currants and cranberries) into a large mixing bowl.

2. Add maple syrup and olive oil. Stir to coat.

3. Spread granola in an even layer on an ungreased baking sheet. 

4. Bake for 30 minutes (but stir every 10-15 minutes to prevent burning).

5. Remove from oven when browned, add currants and dried cranberries.

6. Let cool and store in an air-tight container. Enjoy as a snack on the go, in some yogurt, or with some milk and fresh fruit!
