  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius.
  2. Combine oats, coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds and cacao powder in a large bowl.
  3. Melt coconut oil and rice syrup together, stir in vanilla bean paste then pour over dry mix. Stir well.
  4. Spread the wet granola onto a lined baking tray and bake for 50 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. Immediately after removing the tray from the oven stir though the cacao nibs (the mixture will still be slightly wet so the nibs will stick to the clumps).
  6. Let cool completely (the granola will crisp upon cooling) and store in an airtight container.
