Wolfberry Granola

6 cups gluten-free oats
1 cup wolfberries or goji berries
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup applesauce

Heat oven to 300 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan, then add the maple syrup and applesauce and heat through. Pour this mixture onto the dry ingrediets and stir until evenly coated. Put the granola in a large roasting pan or on a large jelly roll pan with sides and place in oven. Stir every 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. Remove from oven when granola looks evenly toasted but don't let it get too brown. This could take from 40-60 minutes depending on your pan size and your oven. Let the granola cool off then store it in large glass mason jars.
