Gluten Free Organic Granola
7 C. Organic Oats
1 C. Chopped Raw Almonds
1 ½ C. Organic Shredded Coconut
1 C. Organic Oat or Spelt Flour*
1 t. Organic Cinnamon
½ t. Organic Nutmeg
½ t. Organic Cloves
1 t. Sea Salt
½ C. Organic Sesame Seeds
1 ½ T. Hemp Seeds
2 T. Organic Maca Powder

1 C. Raw Agave, Brown Rice Syrup or Honey
½ C. Organic Olive Oil or Raw Coconut Oil
2 T. Organic Vanilla
1/3 C. Water

1 C. Organic Dried Fruit (raisins, dates, pineapple)
1 Package Chocolate Chips (I prefer Enjoy Life®)
Mix dry ingredients in an 11x17 glass dish. Mix together wet ingredients and pour over dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Put in a 225˚ oven for 4-8 hours stirring each hour. Or, you can bake at 300° for 40 minutes stirring every ten minutes. Add dried fruit and chocolate chips after baking. How long you bake it depends on how crunchy and crispy you want it. I prefer not cooking the full amount of time so it's not quite so dry. Enjoy with raw milk or greek yogurt. Stores well in an airtight container for a couple months.
Happy Baking!
