To prepare the syrup: whisk the oil, agave nectar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt if using in a large bowl. Pour in the nuts, and stir a couple times. Add the whole oats and stir again until everything is thoroughly coated in the syrup. Enjoy!
Pour granola onto a large baking sheet and spread evenly. Set a timer for 15 minutes. Remove tray and use large spatula to toss the granola. Spread evenly again and return to oven for another 15 minutes. This will ensure even toasting. Bake for a total of 1 hr 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Mix in raisins or dried berries if using. Store in airtight container or in individual serving size bags for easy portion control. 1/4 cup is the perfect amount of granola to add to a single serving of yogurt.
