Prep: 10Cook: 35Total: 45 minutes
Yield 12 servings 1x


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp dried ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup almond butter (natural, so it’s runny – favorite brands are Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, pecans, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until completely combined.
  5. Pour onto baking sheet in a flat sheet. The granola should take up 3/4 of the sheet and should be all touching and pressed down flat.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Let cool completely before breaking. The best way to ensure clusters is to not crumble until it is totally cool.
  8. Toss with remaining cinnamon and coconut sugar.
  9. Store in airtight container.
