3/4 cup each unsweetened coconut and raisins
1/2 cup each sesame seeds and ground flax meal
1/4 cup each honey and butter or coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine nuts, seeds, flax meal, coconut and raisins. In a small saucepan, combine butter and honey and heat until melted. Add vanilla and almond extract to the butter and honey, and pour over the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Spread granola onto a large baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes. Let the granola cool, then break into small clusters. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

  1. Wow, that sounds so tasty. YUM! Wonder if I can make it and hide it from my hungry animals - if the husband and kids find it a batch this size would disappear in 15 seconds flat!
