Berry Chocolate Chip Granola

Berry Chocolate Chip Granola
2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup roasted cashews
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup milled flax seed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. 
  2. In a large bowl, stir together your oats, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, flax seeds and brown sugar. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, vegetable oil and salt. 
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mix well and pour into two baking pans. I used a 9x13 and 8x8 pan because it's what I happened to have on hand. You can use any combination of pans that you want, just make sure that your layer of granola to be about a 1/2" high.  
  5. Place your pans in the oven and bake for 1 hour and fifteen minutes, stirring your granola every 15 minutes.  
  6. Remove the pan(s) from the oven and allow the granola to cool completely.
  7. Once cool, stir in the cherries, berries and chocolate chips.
