1 1/2     teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4     teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4     teaspoon kosher salt
1     cup pure maple syrup
1     tablespoon vanilla extract
3     tablespoons coconut oil

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Combine oats, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl.
3. In a separate bowl,mix maple syrup, vanilla, and oil.
4. Pour syrup mixture over oat mixture and combine until all ingredients are well incorporated.
5. Spread mixture onto parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake 15 minutes.
6. Stir and return to the oven 10 minutes longer.
7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
8. Granola may be stored up to 2 weeks in an airtight container. (I’ve stored it much longer than this.)


I know oats are controversial, but there are certified gluten free oats available.  I get mine (Bob’s Red Mill) from Swanson Vitamins for a great price and they have a gluten free section of products and each person will know or find out if oats are an issue for you.
