Paleo Crunch Cereal

To continue my ode to breakfast, I present for your enjoyment, Paleo Crunch Cereal. My kids loved cereal in a former life so I wanted to give them a cereal that I could feel good about. The kids loved it! The girl ate it with almond milk and the boy ate a bowl of it dry! This recipe didn't make it through the day. It was gone by noon! Enjoy!

Paleo Crunch Cereal (or granola)
1 C almond meal
1 C chopped almonds
1 c flax meal
½  c coconut flour
4 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
4 Tbsp raw honey
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
½  C finely chopped dates

Preheat oven to 275. Combine almond meal, flax meal, coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and chopped almonds. In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil, maple syrup, raw honey, vanilla and chopped dates.  Add coconut oil mixture to almond meal mixture. Thoroughly combine taking care not to break down larger ‘nuggets’.  Spread mixture on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 90 minutes stirring every 30 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container.

I tried making a half batch of this, and it turned out really burnt. Any ideas why? I made sure to stir it every 30 minutes and baked at 275. Do I need to decrease the cooking time for a smaller batch maybe?
