Sweet & Spicy Granola

I wanted a healthier, less sugary snack alternative to store bought I made my own!!

2 cups thick rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup unsweetened, large flake coconut
2 cups assorted nuts (cashews, peanuts, almonds, pecans) - roughly chopped
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp chili powder
a few dashes cayenne
1/4 cup honey
3 TBSP olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, raisins, nuts, flax seed and spices.

Heat olive oil and honey just until warm and pour over mixture. Toss in bowl until everything is well coated and spread evenly on lined baking sheet.

Bake 30-50 minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally until lightly golden. Let cool. Break apart and store in tupperware or Ziploc bag!
