3 C quick cook oats
1 C mixed nuts
1/4 C flax seeds
3/4 C unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 C dried fruit (I use a mix of dried bananas, orange flavored cranberries, and dried apples)
8 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
5 Tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 350. Put dry ingredients, including coconut and cinnamon, but not the dried fruit on a sheet pan. Stir well and smooth out. Drizzle maple syrup and olive oil and stir again. Place pan in oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. While it's toasting, roughly chop up any large dried fruit. When granola is golden remove from oven and stir in dried fruit and let it cool.  Watch closely at the end, it will burn fast.
This recipe is from my good friend Amy, I modified it a bit.
