- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Toss the oats, almonds, flax seeds, and salt together in a large bowl. Add the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Stir really well with a wooden spoon.
