Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer the oats to the baking sheet and spread out in an even layer. Bake the granola for 45 minutes, mixing it twice during baking.
Remove the granola from the oven and let it cool completely before storing it.
To make this recipe vegan, use maple syrup instead of honey. The granola won't stick together as much if you use maple syrup.
