"I was looking for an affordable way to make delicious, healthy granola. I like the complex flavors, including the mix of molasses and Mexican vanilla. It goes great with milk, yogurt, as an ice cream topping, or just by itself! Enjoy!"

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Combine oats, coconut, pecans, almonds, sea salt, flax seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, paprika, and ginger in a large bowl. Spread evenly on the lined baked sheet.
Stir 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar, honey, molasses, and vanilla extract together in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Pour over oat mixture and mix with a spoon until evenly coated.
Bake in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until granola is evenly browned, about 20 minutes. Cool completely before storing.
This recipe is a little on the saltier side to balance out all of the sweet elements. I used Maldon(R) salt, which is a chunkier, larger-grained salt. If you want to use table salt, use 1/2 teaspoon, or whatever saltiness you desire. You can even taste a little before baking.
