Total Time 10 mins
Course Breakfast
Servings 6


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond slices (raw, unsalted)
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds (raw)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom (ground)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened, raw)
  • 3/4 cup dried fruit (chopped, I used cranberries)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Mix the oats, almonds, flax seeds, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom together in a large bowl. Stir thoroughly to combine.
  • Add in the olive oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir to evenly coat the dry ingredients with the wet.
  • Turn the granola out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until golden, stirring every 10 minutes to make sure the granola is cooking evenly.
  • Stir in the coconut flakes in the last 10 minutes of baking.
  • Remove from the oven and add the chopped cranberries. Stir to combine.
  • Let cool before eating. Don't worry if it still seems a little wet when you take it out of the oven, it will crisp up in the cooling process.
