Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Line a flat sheet pan with parchment paper.
Combine the first 7 ingredients (coconut chips through salt) in a large bowl and stir thoroughly.
Add maple syrup and coconut oil to a small sauce pan then heat minimally on stove to melt the coconut oil. Stir in vanilla.
Pour the maple syrup mixture over the granola mixture then mix well to coat.
Spread out evenly on the baking sheet pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until almond slices and coconut chips are golden brown (do not over cook) stirring twice. Granola will crisp as it cools.
Cool completely on the sheet pan.
