What had me super excited....was all of the oats and the flax seed. As we all know helps boost all that awesome Mummie's Nummies!
Let me say... finding some of the ingredients was a little difficult. Are all Oats treated equally? (I still don't know.) How about Milled Flax Seed.... is there plain Flax Seed? And where the heck do you find Hazelnuts (let alone chopped ones!)
Okay so the only thing I did not get was the Hazelnuts, which I substituted with Roasted Peanuts. And you know I HAD to do this..... I shaved one block of Baker's Milk Chocolate, one block of Baker's White Chocolate and added it to the granola when I added the dried cranberries. OHHHH and I found Made in America Apple Juice! That's right... even the apples were from The Good Ol' USA! (Shocker..... it was the store brand Apple Juice!!!!)
Heat oven to 350º. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, nuts, flax seeds, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Whisk the oil, honey, and apple juice in measuring cup.
Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Spread onto a large sheet pan. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even golden brown, around 30-40 minutes, depending on oven.
Remove granola from the oven and allow to cool completely, stirring occasionally. Add cranberries. Store cooled granola in an airtight container.
Here are my pics....

(Into the pan you go!)
(Nice and toasty!!!)
(added the dried Cranberries and shaved chocolate pieces)
It was so easy to make. I have been munching on it (all by itself) all afternoon.... but I am sure adding it to yogurt, mixing in some milk (which my husband will LOVE!)or any other combo you can think of would be FANTASTIC! I am hooked and will make this more often!
