1/2 C raw red walnuts, chopped (regular walnuts are fine, too)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 C coconut oil, melted
1/2 C maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir to incorporate.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the mixture onto the tray, spreading it out evenly. Bake for 1 hour.
Remove the granola from the oven and move it around on the tray with a spatula. Return the tray to the oven and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes. Cool and enjoy with yogurt, your favorite milk, or plain as a simple, easy snack.
