Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine oats, cocoa powder, almonds, coconut, salt, and coconut sugar. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, add coconut 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.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Using an extra piece of parchment paper, press down oat mixture into an even, packed layer. 
    Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through bake time and carefully flattening back into an even layer with your piece of parchment. Also at the halfway mark, tent pan lightly with a sheet of foil to avoid burning.
  • When finished baking, remove from oven and allow granola to cool completely on a wire rack, before breaking it into pieces and placing in an airtight container. This will ensure there are clumps!
