Everyday Granola

I recently bought a couple bags of granola and was shocked about the number of ingredients! (Many of which I didn’t know what they were) I was also shocked by the high sugar content. I used to make granola all the time, but somewhere along the line I stopped.  Anyways, I decided I needed to get back into making it,  all with ingredients I had on hand.

This is a simple, everyday granola that is lightly sweetened and has a touch of cinnamon.  It keeps well and is delicious with our vanilla or natural yogurt! Add a drizzle of maple syrup to your desired taste.

Tip: If you like coconut, sprinkle some on top of the granola when you have a few minutes left of cooking time. This toasts the coconut slightly and it tastes delish!
