Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, crispy brown rice cereal, shredded coconut and chia seeds. Set aside.
In a small pot over medium-low heat on the stove, combine the brown rice syrup, coconut sugar, coconut butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir until melted and smooth. Add a couple tablespoons of water, if necessary, to thin. You want it to be pouring consistency, but still fairly thick.
Pour the sugar mixture over the oats mixture and stir to combine well. Make sure everything is thoroughly coated.
Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes until brown and crispy. It will continue to get crispier as it cools.
Let cool on on the baking sheet on a wire rack until completely cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the pantry.
To get crunchy clusters of granola, do not stir the mixture as it cooks. Keep an eye on it, though, to make sure it doesn't burn. Handle it very gently until it cools completely.
