Basic Granola

2 1/2 C GF old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 C oil
1/2 C honey (I used 1/2 C coconut sugar )
1/2 C flaxmeal
1 1/2 unsweetened shredded coconut
1 C sunflower seeds
Preheat oven to 275 degrees and grease large rimmed baking sheet.
Place the honey, oil, oats, flaxmeal and coconut plus any added seeds or nuts in large bowl.  Stir to combined and evenly coated.
Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
Stir mixture gently and bake another 20 minutes or until golden.  Stir and add the fruit, if using.
Allow to cool completely on sheet.  The less mixing, the larger clusters or chunks of granola you will end up with.
Add-ins: chopped dried fruit such as apricots or cherries, pumpkin seeds or sesame creative and experiment!
