Sunflower/Pumpkin Seeds and Fruit Granola

This is a great snack  for walking, travelling or at work.


  • 3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds,
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • 1 cup mixture made of dried cherries, cranberries, golden raisins and snipped dried apricots.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the sunflower and pumpkin seeds, almonds and flaxseed and microwave on high for 20 seconds. Stir in the oil, honey and salt and toss to coat.

Spread this out on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. During this time, stir the mixture twice to move it around. Stir in the dried fruit and cool for 15 minutes. Spread this out on the parchment paper and let cool completely. Break up into pieces and store in an airtight container.

Store for a couple of weeks (if you don’t eat it all up) in the refrigerator.
