Almond-Currant Granola

What you need: 

2 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup currants
3 tablespoons coconut oil (liquefied)
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
2 tablespoons golden whole flax seed

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the rolled oats, almonds, coconut, currants, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until well-combined.
2. On a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, place granola in a single, even layer. Bake for 10 minutes, then give the granola a good toss.
3. Bake for 5-10 more minutes or until granola is golden brown. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, then add the flax seeds (heat destroys their omegas). Stir to combine.
4. Let cool completely before storing the granola in a covered container. It will crisp as it cools.
Source of recipe: I tossed a bunch of stuff in a bowl with a common theme in mind. It turned out awesome!
