Multi-grain Granola

I had several less-common grains hanging out in my pantry and had the idea to add them to granola. This granola is a simple, basic one that can be made with or without the quinoa, millet, buckwheat, or amaranth. I usually do not add dried fruit, as I prefer to eat it with fresh fruit.

4 c. old-fashioned oats
2 Tbsp. quinoa
2 Tbsp. millet
2 Tbsp. buckwheat groats
1 Tbsp. amaranth
1 c. unsweetened coconut (flakes or chips)
1 c. pepitas
1 c. chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
dash of cinnamon

1 c. dried fruit, chopped

Add all ingredients (except dried fruit) to a large bowl. Stir to combine, making sure the liquids are evenly distributed. Place on one or two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 250 for 50 minutes. Allow to cool. Stir in dried fruit.
