Almond and Pumpkin Seed Granola Almond and Pumpkin Seed Granola

3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup macadamia, cashew or almond butter
1/4 cup raisins

Place two racks in the middle and upper third of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease lightly with oil. In a large bowl, toss together oats, nuts and salt. In a medium bowl, gently whisk together the melted coconut oil, nut butter and honey. Pour the oil mixture over the oats and nuts and stir well. Make sure that every bit of oats and nuts is covered in some of the oil mixture. Spread the granola mixture onto the two baking sheets from edge to edge. Bake for 15 minutes and carefully remove the pans from the oven to toss and stir the oats. This will ensure that the mixture cooks and browns evenly. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove and stir. Repeat until mixture has cooked a total of 30 minutes and the oats are dark and golden. Allow to cool completely before tossing in golden raisins and storing in an airtight container.
