½ teaspoon of sea salt

  Preheat oven to 350Fand line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, nuts/seeds, coconut, salt and cinnamon. Mix well.

Pour in the oil and vanilla. Mix until every oat and nut is lightly coated. Pour the granola onto your prepared pan and use a large spoon to spread it in an even layer.

Bake until lightly golden, about 20 mins, stirring halfway.

Let the granola cool completely. Top with the dried fruit and the cocoa nibs (these are pre-toasted to no need to roast again).

Transfer the granola to an airtight container, and feel free to break it up with your hands for a finer cereal.
