3cupsrolled oats and gluten-free grains
1 1/2cupsnuts and seeds
1tablespoonpure vanilla extract
1teaspoonflaky sea salt
1/2 teaspoonground spices
1 1/2cupsdried fruit
Preheat the oven to 300°F. Combine the grains, nuts and seeds in a large bowl.
Combine the juice, sweetener, oil, vanilla, salt and spices in a medium bowl. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and toss to coat.
Spread the mixture evenly on a large baking sheet. Bake, stirring the granola every 15 minutes, for about 40-50 minutes total, or until golden brown. Granola will crisp up and become crunchier as it cools.
Let the granola cool completely on the pan. Stir in the dried fruits. Transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 month. Alternately, freeze for up to 3 months.
Note that if you use melted or browned butter in the granola, it should be consumed within 5 days.
