  • Step 2

    Mix oats, almonds, sunflower seed kernels, and flax seeds together in a bowl.

  • Step 3

    Whisk syrup, honey, coconut oil, water, and salt together in a separate small bowl until smooth; pour over oats mixture and stir. Spread the resulting mixture onto the prepared pan in an even layer.

  • Step 4

    Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 60 to 90 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely.

  • Step 5

    Remove granola from pan by lifting parchment paper. Break granola into small pieces and put in a bowl; add raisins and toss by hand to mix. Store in an airtight container.

  • Cook's Notes:

    You can vary the amount of flax seed and sunflower seed kernels, but the total measure of the two should be one cup.

    Sweetened, dried cranberries are a good substitute for the raisins for a slightly different flavor.
