Macaroon Granola

**NOTE: I omitted the coconut butter, the vanilla bean and I used unsweetened chipped coconut.  It is not overly sweet, but just perfect for me.  If you choose, you can use sweetened coconut, or up the amount of honey.**

Macaroon Granola
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
contents of 1/2 vanilla bean
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil, liquid
1/4 cup coconut butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375.
In a large bowl, combine oats, flax, wheat germ, coconut, sea salt and almonds. In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil with honey and extracts.  Add oil mixture to oat mixture and stir until moistened. Add scraped vanilla beans and coconut butter, mixing thoroughly.
Lay on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping every 5 minutes, or until golden brown and toasty.
