  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Combine the oil, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl; stir to combine.
  3. Place both types of oats in a large bowl; stir to combine. Add the oil/syrup/spice mixture and stir until oats are evenly coated. Spread oat mixture on a rimmed baking sheet or large jelly roll pan.
  4. Place oats in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Immediately turn off the oven and leave the granola inside to finish baking (do not open the oven door). Allow oats to "slow bake" as the oven cools, at least 2 1/2 hours or overnight.
  5. When cool, break up large clumps of oats. Serve the granola with coconut milk beverage or sprinkle on coconut milk yogurt.
  6. Store leftover granola in an airtight container at room temperature.

As a person who cooks all my family's food from scratch I absolutely love the way this recipe is cooked. No fuss or muss, I make a batch while doing the dishes so that I am right there to turn off the oven after 10 minutes. Probably because of my high altitude, or a hot running oven I did have to adjust the cook temperature to 285 degrees. I thought it was a little bland, so I doubled the salt and vanilla. But since I found this recipe, I have found that this cooking method works on all the other granola recipes I have found as well, so no more babysitting granola in the oven for me. Thank you so much poster of this recipe. My family has really benefited from this. They get much more granola these days.

I used butter, increased the vanilla to 1tsp because it is so yummy and the rest was easy. All in my family loved this. And the bake for only 10 min then oven off and off to bed is great! Thank you, will be doing this with various modifications...

This is an excellent recipe with lots of room for variation. For mine, I add chopped almonds, cashews, and flaxseeds, and I bump the salt up to 1/4 tsp. because salty granola is delicious. =) It's also safe to increase your vanilla to 1 full teaspoon, or to use 1/4 tsp. almond extract instead. Either way, if you keep pretty close to the original recipe, your granola will turn out great. Thank you for an excellent recipe!

Ok. This actually works! I was skeptical. It's an easy energy conserving way to make granola. I did substitute butter for the coconut oil and honey for the maple syrup. I also changed the oven temp to 350. My family loved it with their personal favorite add ins like raisins.
