Coconutty Granola

This recipe came straight from the package of Let's Do...Organic Coconut Flakes. It's one of the best tasting granola recipes I've tried. There are so many wonderful flavors going on in this; toasted coconut, almonds, cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla. Who could resists oats enveloped in all that yumminess?!

Coconutty Granola
3 cups Rolled Oats
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup sliced or shopped almonds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup vegetable or sunflower oil
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 300 F

Mix oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon and almonds in a medium bowl. Mix maple syrup, oil and vanilla in a seperate bowl. Combine the syrup mixture with the oat mixture and stir until evenly coated.Pour the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and spread to cover evenly. Bake for 30 minutes, stir and bake another 20-30 minutes depending on preferred doneness. Store in airtight container. May refrigerate or freeze to extend freshness.

Can substitute raisins or dried cranberries for some or all of the almonds.
