Krista's "Mmm! Mmm!" Granola

4 c. thick rolled oats, gluten-free
1/2 c. sunflower seeds (raw)
1/2 c. pumpkin seeds (raw)
1/2 c. flaked or shredded coconut (unsweetened)
Flaxseed to taste (1/4 - 1/2 cup)
1 c. chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc.)
1/4 c. oil grapeseed or coconut oil
3/4 c. honey (use less honey and more oil if you want it less sweet)
1/2 c. powdered goat's milk
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
splash of almond extract
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
few shakes of nutmeg
any additional spices (cloves, cardamom, all-spice, etc.)
raisins / dried fruit of choice

Toast nuts and seeds (except flaxseeds). Mix all dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Bake on two greased cookie sheets (or use parchment paper) at 250 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn oven down to 180 degrees and bake an additional 16 - 19 minutes (or longer if you want it crunchier) until golden brown. Remove and let cool 10 minutes. Add dried fruit.
