1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats

Method of Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the oars, coconut, pepitas, flax and salt in a large bowl and toss to combine.
Stir together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture and toss to combine, making sure the oat mixture is coated thoroughly.
