Homemade granola is always great to have on hand for an easy breakfast with yogurt and fruit, or to enjoy as a snack later in the day. Try using it in other recipes as well for a new flavour and variety.
In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, coconut, flax seed, sugar, maple syrup and oil. Stir together until everything is well coated. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Spread mixture onto rimmed baking sheet and bake in preheated 250°F (121°C) oven for about 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes until golden.
Substitute any of your favourite dried fruits like raisins, blueberries, cherries, chopped dates or figs.
