  • 4 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup raw pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • dash of cloves
  • couple dashes of ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine oats, pecans, almonds, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, and coconut sugar. Stir to combine.
  3. In a small bowl add olive oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined. Pour liquid over dry ingredients and stir with a large spoon until the oat mixture is completely coated.
  4. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through bake time and flattening back into an even layer. You may find halfway through that you want to cover pan lightly with a sheet of foil in case your pecans look as though they are browning quickly.
  5. Remove from oven and allow granola to cool completely before placing in an airtight container. This will ensure there are clumps!
