½ cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, chopped dried mango, goji berries)

1. Preheat oven to 300F. Combine rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, pecans, sesame seeds, coconut flakes, sea salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom in a mixing bowl. Stir in the maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla. Make sure all dry ingredients are evenly coated.
