This granola is for lovers of coconut. There is no dried fruit, just any combination of nuts and seeds you will want to try or have available in the cupboard. I used a combination of pecans, walnuts and pepitas.

All about Almond Flour
Almonds are high in manganese, vitamin E and magnesium. As they have a high-fat content, it is important to store them properly to stop them from becoming rancid. Store shelled almonds in a tightly sealed container, in a cool dry place away from exposure to sunlight. Almonds and nut flours can be stored in the refrigerated for several months, and in the freezer for up to a year. Almonds still in their shell have the longest shelf life.
Almond meal is generally the same as almond flour. Sometimes it can be just ground finer.
