Step 4

Pour the oat mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spreading it out as evenly as possible. Bake until gold brown, about 45-50 minutes. Halfway through baking, remove the sheet from the oven and gently flip sections of the granola with a spatula, trying to keep the clumps as intact as possible.
