Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Melt the coconut oil. Stir in the maple syrup, seasonings, vanilla, and orange zest.
Toss with all the remaining ingredients, except the salt. Pour on the parchment lined cookie sheet and spread into a single layer. Sprinkle just a pinch or two of flaky sea salt.
Bake until just lightly golden brown, 10-20 minutes. Keep a close eye on it, you may want to mix it about at 10 minutes.
The granola will harden as it cools.
