Who needs store bought granola with this incredibly easy recipe! (Gluten-Free Peeps: Substitute GF oats!)

5 cups oats
3/4 cup grapeseed or coconut oil
1/3-1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup slivered oats, walnuts and/or pecans
1/2 cup flax seeds
1 cup raisins, craisins or apricot pieces

Mix oats, oil, maple syrup and vanilla together well and place on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (not necessary just easier clean up!). Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, stirring well every 10 minutes. For the last 10 minutes of baking, add the flax seeds. When browned to your liking, remove from oven and sprinkle with cinnamon and add the dried fruit.

Top with your favorite berries and yogurt and enjoy your healthy and homemade breakfast!
