Homemade Granola

I absolutely love granola, however, most of the time when you buy granola at the store, it's loaded with sugar and a bunch of ingredients that I've never heard of, so I decided to make some granola of my own.
I decided to make a batch for myself and a batch for Jack. He wanted raisins and sunflower seeds and I wanted almonds and dried cranberries.
When making granola, you can pretty much put in it what you want.
4 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Chips
1 Tablespoon of your favorite spice like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, or a mixture of cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and cloves for a gingerbread taste.
1 Cup of raw sliced almonds, chopped pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or a fun combination. 1/2 Cup of dried cranberries, raisins, chopped apricots, chopped cherries, etc.
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Honey, or Agave.
You could also try 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.
1 1/2 Teaspoons of vanilla, almond, or your favorite extract.
Mix ingredients together and bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes until golden brown.
How simple is that... The granola is good plain, on yogurt, with milk... There's so many ways to eat granola....
