This granola is DE-LI-CIOUS and more healthy than most too as there is no added sugar, just a drizzle of real maple syrup. As Nathan would say, "Yum-o". The only danger is that it is hard to stop eating once you have started. It is just too good.

Spray a sided cookie sheet (jelly roll pan) with olive oil. I just used cooking spray.

Put as much as you like of each of these things on the pan:

Sweetened coconut
Slivered almonds
Walnuts and/or pecans (we don't do either due to allergies)
Dried Cranberries
Raisins (my addition)
Chia or flax seeds (optional)

Sprinkle with cinnamon
Lightly spray top of concoction with olive oil
Drizzle a little maple syrup on top.

Bake on 350 for 4-6 minutes until golden.
A bigger batch will take longer...mine takes more like 15-20 minutes.

I love granola and I love all the different variations. This one sounds yummy too! I even found a granola recipe on allrecipes that you can make on the stove in ten minutes, no oven. It was pretty good and perfect for when I'm feeling lazy.
