Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsalted almonds, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup vegan granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine oats, oat flour, salt, coconut, chia seeds, and almonds in a large bowl.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Add the maple syrup and granulated sugar. Mix well.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry mixture. Stir together until completely incorporated. This takes a few minutes of stirring. Make sure there are no dry spots.
  5. Dump the mixture onto the prepared sheet pan. Press down firmly with the back of a large spoon or a spatula.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir the granola. Use the back of a large spoon or spatula to press it down firmly again. Return to the oven and bake for 6-8 more minutes, until it begins to brown on the edges. Keep an eye out – it’ll burn quickly!
  7. Remove the granola from the oven and stir again, then press down again. Let cool completely – it’ll crisp up as it cools. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
