Preheat oven to 300 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the oat flour, grind 3/4 cup of the oats into a powder (I used my spice grinder). Set the flour aside. Chop the nuts to your liking. I did mine fine in the spice grinder. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix together the remaining 3/4 cup oats, oat flour, nuts and salt. Into this add the melted butter, maple syrup and brown sugar. Mix well.
Transfer this to the prepared baking sheet and spread around. Bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes stir the granola around and continue to bake in intervals of 10 minutes stirring in between each, until granola is to your desired level of crispiness. Be careful not to burn the granola. The parts which don’t form clusters brown quickly. The granola will also crisp more as it cools.
Once cooled add in any desired dried fruit.
Enjoy on it’s own, with some milk or yogurt!
