Oh dang y'all, this is the best granola in town, I promise.
Pre-heat the oven to 350.
Mix together oats, brown sugar, both nuts, pepitas and sunflower seeds. Give this beautiful mixture a nice little toss together. ***Do not add dried fruit and coconut flakes until the end.
Mix together melted coconut oil and half maple syrup and pour over mixture. Give this even more beautiful mixture a nice little toss together.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour your delightful mixture onto it. Spread evenly, this will ensure your granola cooks nicely and doesn't burn in certain spots.
Place in oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Take mixture out of the oven and add in the remaining maple syrup and mix nicely. Place back in oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
Keep stirring mixture every 10-15 minutes until golden brown or until your granola reaches desired crunchiness!
Allow granola to cool on counter for about an hour. NOW, add your chewy dried fruit mixture and coconut flakes, mix well.
Store in an airtight container or glass mason jar in pantry. Granola will stay delicious for about a month.
