Title:   Apple-Cinnamon Granola
Category:   Breakfast - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Scott Jurek
1 to 2 t coconut oil
4 c raw oat groats - soaked in water for 6 to 8 hours or overnight, then drained
1 apple- cored and sliced
1/2 c dried coconut flakes
2 t ground cinnamon
2 T maple syrup or 1 T agave nectar
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t sea salt
1/2 c raw almonds - chopped
1/2 c pumpkin seeds - chopped
2/3 c raisins
Directions:   Preheat the oven to 250F. Grease two baking sheets with the oil.

Process the oats, apple, coconut, cinnamon, sweetened, vanilla and salt in a food processor for 30 seconds. Scrape sides, process for another 30 seconds, and repeat one more time. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and combine with the almonds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins. Mix thoroughly with a spoon.

Spread the mixture in a thin layer on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 2 to 4 hours, turning the granola over a few times with a spatula, until dried and crisp. You can set the oven temperature higher and reduce the baking time, but be sure to check frequently to avoid burning.

Cool and stir in the raisins. Serve with non-dairy milk and sliced banana or fresh berries. Keeps for 3 to 4 weeks in an airtight container.
