Citrus-Coconut Granola

4 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups walnut pieces
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon salt
zest of two oranges
1/3 cup butter
1/6 cup agave maple syrup
1/6 cup tangarine honey
1/3 cup of orange juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Combine the oats, walnuts, coconut, salt, and orange zest in a large bowl. Heat the butter in a saucepan over and stir in the syrup, honey and juice. Pour the mixture over the oat mixture and stir until everything is well coated. Divide the mixture equally between the two silpat-lined baking sheets and spread into a thin layer.

Bake, stirring occasionally, for 35 to 45  minutes, until the granola is toasty and golden.

Let the granola cool completely and store in an airtight container.
