Preheat oven to 325 F (163 C) and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
To a large mixing bowl, add the oats, chopped almonds, coconut, chia seeds, coconut sugar, salt, and golden milk spice mix (see notes for individual spices). Stir to combine.
Add the aquafaba to a mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to whip into loose peaks. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes. NOTE: If using oil in place of aquafaba, skip the whipping step.
Add the maple syrup and vanilla (optional) to the aquafaba and beat for 30 seconds more (or if using oil, stir to combine). Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and fold to evenly coat.
Spread the mixture evenly onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Stir at the halfway point and rotate the pan to ensure even baking.
Let cool completely, then add the golden raisins (optional) and toss. Store the granola in an airtight container and enjoy as a quick snack or in a bowl with some dairy-free milk! Store at room temperature for up to 3-4 days, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
