My favorite Granola to give away and enjoy

                                LITTLE D NUTTY GRANOLA

6 cups quick cooking oats, organic
3 cups mixed pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecans and almonds, coarsely diced
1/4 cup honey or agave, heated  
3 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
3 cups shredded coconut unsweetened
2 Tablespoons kosher salt
4 cups dried fruit to include raisins, dried cranberries, dried blueberries, diced apricots, minced dates

Preheat oven to 325F
Line sheet pans with parchment paper.

Combine all the ingredients together, in a large bowl except the dried fruits and berries.
Bake the granola mixture on sheet pans lined with parchment paper till golden brown about 30 -40 minutes.
When done remove granola from the oven and let cool.  
Add the mixed dried fruit at once to include raisins, cranberries, blueberries, apricots, stirring well with a large spoon.
When cooled, divide the granola evenly in jars.

Granola keeps well in the refrigerator.
