Healthy Yummy Granola!!!

Good morning :) So i woke up in the mood to make some home made granola! I found an even healthier recipe than the one i already had! Since i had all the ingredients i decided to make it before we went on our morning walk. This way when we got back it would be ready to be munched on! It's so easy, delicious, and most importantly really healthy. Samuel loved it, he kept on wanting more :0) and its perfect for snacking when were on the run, especially for us mommies. I changed it up a bit by adding different dried fruit. I used cranberries and apricot. That's really up to you though!
Here's the recipe:

3 cups uncooked, old fashioned rolled oats
1½ cups dry coconut shreds, unsweetened
½ cup wheat germ
1 cup sunflower seeds, unsalted
¼ cup sesame seeds
½ cup raw organic honey
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
½ cup cold water
1 cup slivered almonds
½ gogi berries (optional- you can use any dried fruit you prefer)

Preheat oven to 225°
In a extra large mixing bowl, combine oats, coconut shreds, wheat germ, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. Toss ingredients thoroughly. Combine honey and coconut oil. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Next add cold water a little at a time until the mixture is crumbly. Pour mixture into a large baking sheet which has been coated with cooking spray. Spread mixture evenly to edges of the pan. Place pan on middle oven rack and bake for 1 ½ hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Add slivered almonds and bake for another 30 minutes, or until mixture is thoroughly dry and golden brown in color. Remove from oven and mix in gogi berries and cool. Put granola into a tightly covered container or zip lock bag. Store in a cool dry place.Serve with fresh fruit and milk (soy, almond, rice, or coconut milks all taste great with this granola).
