Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 12 servings


  • 2.5 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Preheat your oven to 350F. In a 9*13 inch glass pan (or similar non stick pan) add all your dry ingredients including the gluten-free oats, pecans, salt, and spices. Stir to evenly mix.
  • Next, add your wet ingredients to the pan including the maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla bean paste, and lemon juice. Mix until the oats and pecans are evenly coated.
  • Smooth the granola out so it is evenly dispersed in the pan. Please note it's okay if your granola is layered!
  • Add your granola to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove, stir, and then bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until the oats are crispy and browned, but not burnt. It is important to stir half way through so the granola cooks evenly.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving. Eat straight out of the jar or on top of yogurt or smoothie bowls. Granola will keep in a sealed container at room temperature up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!


  • Granola can be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It will also keep in a sealed container in the freezer for up to 1 month.
