Melt coconut oil, honey/maple syrup in a small saucepan until starting to bubble and simmer.
Add vanilla if using.
In a large bowl, mix the coconut chips and nuts and any optional ingredients if using.
Pour honey/maple syrup/coconut oil mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. The consistency will vary some depending on the honey, coconut chips, and coconut oil you use. If there is not enough of the honey mixture to lightly coat all of the ingredients, add slightly more melted coconut oil and honey in equal parts.
Spread on a parchment paper lined baking dish.
Bake for 15-20 until starting to brown.
Remove and let cool, then crumble in to granola pieces.
Store in an air tight jar and use within two weeks.
