Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place a silicone baking mat or parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet.
Mix oats, pecans, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, allspice, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, maple syrup and olive oil in a bowl, until well combined.
Spread granola mixture onto the baking sheet in an even layer.
Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for approx. 35 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes, so it bakes evenly.
Allow to cool and add the dried cherries and cranberries.
Store in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
To make this recipe you can do with a half-size baking sheet, or only use half of a normal size (9x 13) baking sheet. Make sure the layer is too thin; it will bake faster and could burn before you know it.
