1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×12 baking dish and line with parchment paper.

2. Toss the oats, almonds, and coconut together on a sheet pan and bake 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the flax seed meal.

3. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F.

4. Place the coconut oil, honey or maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 1 minute, then pour over the toasted oatmeal mixture. Add the dates, apricots, and cranberries and stir well.

5. Pour mixture into the prepared 8×12 baking dish. Wet your fingers and lightly press the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake 25-30 minutes, until light and golden brown. Cool in pan at least 2-3 hours before cutting.
