Paleo nut granola

It's just about 11pm. Ryan's sleeping and I would/should be too but like I mentioned in my embarrassing post earlier today, our Internet is now working and I'm too busy looking up recipes to sleep. Here's what I made for Ryan when he gets the munchies, which is always.
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup walnuts/pecans
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs raw honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla

Mix it all together and spread on cookie sheet (coated with coconut oil or lined with parchment).
Bake 5-7 minutes. Let cool and add dried fruit.
One of the many perks with granola is the versatility (that's probably the 3rd time in my entire life using that word so you know I only say it if I mean it). Change the nuts up if you want, I added raw sunflower seeds, dried apple chips and raisins. :)
