Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten free oats
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • 1 ½ cup almonds chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup vegan protein powder optional
  • ½ cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ⅓ - ½ cup oat milk

Instructions

  • Combine dry ingredients: Use a whisk to carefully mix together all of the dry ingredients.
  • Add in wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Spread the granola out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 300F for 45 minutes, flipping halfway.  Let granola harden on the sheet pan for a few hours before storing in an airtight container.

Notes

Store in an airtight container (I like storing mine in a Mason Jar) on your countertop for up to a week. 
Not crunchy? Try leaving it out for a few hours before storing in an airtight container. I let mine sit on the sheet pan for several hours to harden.
Freeze extra portions of vanilla almond granola in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
Use old fashioned oats, not quick oats to ensure the best texture.
Recipe can be doubled but use two baking sheets to ensure it bakes in one even layer.
