granola from Sower and the Seed

Here's our granola:
3 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. coconut--flaked or shredded
3/4 c. sliced almonds
1/2 t. cinnamon (we add lots more)
1/2 c. maple syrup/honey/or agave
1/3 c. oil
1 t. cinnamon (we add more of this, too)
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  Heat the oil and maple syrup and vanilla, pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.  Put one layer onto a cookie sheet and toast at 300 degrees, turning once.  Toast until granola is as golden as you like it.  Remove from oven, cool, stirring once or twice to reduce clumping.  Store in an airtight container.  Great as a gift!!
