Note

A twist on the classic sandwich, this granola is great served with yogurt or milk, or eaten on it's own as a snack. Feel free to sub your favourite jam, nut, and dried fruit.

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl combine oats, pecans, almonds, flax, cinnamon, and salt and mix until combined.
3. In a small bowl combine almond butter and maple syrup (or honey) and microwave for about 60 seconds, or until runny. Pour almond butter mixture over oat mixture and mix until oats are evenly coated.
4. Add apricot jam and mix again. Spread out granola evenly on the baking sheet and bake for about 50 minutes, until it starts to brown.
5. Remove from oven and mix in raisins. Store in a sealed container or zip lock bag.
