Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats (certified gluten-free)
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp allspice

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 and line a pan with parchment paper, for easy removal of the granola after it has baked. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients. 

  3. In a microwave safe bowl (like a pyrex) microwave your coconut oil till it has melted. Add your honey and vanilla to the bowl and stir till all is well combined.

  4. Pour your wet ingredients over your dry ingredients, and stir till everything is the same consistency and there is a light coat of the wet ingredients enveloping all of the dry ingredients.

  5. Spread into a thin, even layer, on the pan and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

  6. When the granola comes out, it will not be hardened yet, so WAIT until it has cooled. After about 30 minutes, your granola should have cooled into harder chunks that need to be broken apart, to whatever size your liking is.

  7. Devour!
