Paleo Cranberry Chia Almond Fig Granola

I just love how the Paleo Granola permeates the whole house with such a wonderful smell.  I make a big ass batch so we have it for a few weeks.

Almonds 3 cups raw
Figs 1 cup dried/soaked
Pepitas/Pumpkin Seeds 1 cup
Cranberries 1 cup dried
Coconut Flakes (large) 1 cup
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Sunflower Seeds 1/2 cup
Chia Seeds 1/4 cup
Sesame Seeds 1/4 cup 
Vanilla 2 tablespoons
Cinnamon 1 tablespoon 

Pulse All nuts thru a Food Processor until crushed but still a bit chunky (do in batches if necessary).  Soak the Figs until soft (overnight) Irving in microwave for a minute or so.  Grind in a Food Processor until smooth, sticky paste forms.  Mix all ingredients together now in a large bowl until evenly distributed.  Spread on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You can roll the top using plastic wrap or parchment paper if you want a smooth Bar-Like consistency; if not, the free ball it for lumps of Granola.  Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.  Allow to cool before cutting or breaking into peices.  So many possible uses for this; hope you like it!
