2 cups large flake rolled oats
1 1/4 cups sliced or whole almonds
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp rice syrup (opt)
2 Tbsp safflower oil
1 cup dried fruit (cranberries raisins, chopped apricots)

I also add:

1/8 cup sesame seeds
1/8 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup cashews

Arrange the oats on a cookie sheet and bake in 300 oven, stirring occasionally until lightly toasted. (About 20 minutes.) Meanwhile in a large bowl, combine the almonds, coconut and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, rice syrup, and oil. Stir the toasted oats into the almond mixture. Add the syrup mixture, stirring to thoroughly combine. Grease the baking sheet. Spread the granola evenly on the sheet and bake, stirring occasionally until golden brown. (20-25 minutes.) The mixture will still look and feel wet. Remove from the oven and stir in the dried fruit. Cool completely in the pan. Serve with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt, fresh fruit and milk.
