½ cup brown rice syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. salt

2. Combine coconut oil, brown sugar, almond butter and brown rice syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and stir until dissolved, 3-4 minutes. Stir in vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and pour over oat mixture, tossing well to combine.

3. Press the granola mixture evenly into prepared pan using a sheet of waxed paper or plastic wrap on surface and bake 20-25 minutes until lightly golden and fragrant.
