FANTASTIC Homemade, Low fat, Granola Cereal

FANTASTIC Homemade, not high fat, Granola Cereal
 I have been making my own cereal the last few weeks , fine-tuning to just the right recipe for perfect granola that tastes great plain as a snack or in a bowl with milk. I have come up with 2 recipes I love. And my 3 year old daughter can't get enough either one!!

The first recipe for you is what I like to call--
Nutty/ fruity Goodness:

~Coating~
1/4 cup honey 
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup Kayro syrup
2 TB Extra light tasting Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt 
~~
4 cups regular oats [not quick cook]
1/4-1/2 cup dried cranberries
 1/4-1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup crunchy almond slivers
1/4 cup chopped pecans; 
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds 
3/4 cup coconut flakes

Mix first 8 ingredients together in a small bowl, mix well.
Add oats to large bowl, and pour coating over top. Stir all together to coat well. I usually have to use my hands to get everything rolled around and coated evenly.
Next add all fruit and nuts to bowl and stir up well.
Line large cookie sheet with aluminum foil  [Preferably the kind with raised edges] Spray well with butter flavored cooking spray. 
Spread granola out well to cover pan
Place in oven for 30 minutes at 325 degrees. Stirring at about 10 minutes.
