Homemade Granola

Mix together dry ingredients below:
6+ cups old fashioned oats
1 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds

Combine over low heat the following ingredients:
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 T vanilla
1 T cinnamon
1 t sea salt

2 cups dried fruit (raisins, dates, coconut, pineapple, mango, apricots...whatever you like!)
1 cup raw unsalted cashews

Mix it all together and bake on two cookie sheets at 325 degrees. Mix after 15 minutes, then after another 10 min and remove after 5-10 minutes more. When cool, mix with 2 cups dried fruit  and  cashews. Enjoy with milk or yogurt for breakfast or sprinkled over ice cream for dessert.
This recipe is adapted from one my brother-in-law in Portland gave me- he adds sesame seeds and other nuts like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts or pumpkin seeds, which is yummy, too.
