  • 12 Cups Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 ½ Cups Coconut Flakes
  • 1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 Cup Almonds
  • ½ Cup Flax Seeds Ground
  • ½ Cup Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Water warm
  • 1 Cup Coconut Oil melted
  • 2 Cups Honey can use honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Sea Salt


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, almonds, flax seeds, sesame seeds and cinnamon. Mix well to combine.
  • In a blender, add the warm water, melted coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and salt. Blend until combined.
  • Pour your wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until the oats are completely covered in the liquid.
  • Spray a large baking sheet with pan spray, then spread the granola evenly onto your prepared baking sheet pan.
  • Put into your preheated oven and bake for about 1 ½ hours, stirring every 30 minutes. You want the granola to be lightly golden brown.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and stir once more. Let cool completely, then feel free to break up the granola with your hands and transfer to an airtight container. Enjoy!
