Easy Maple Granola

Easy Maple Granola

This is one of my favorite recipes! What I love about this simple recipe is the few ingredients it requires. I had never even considered making my own granola before, until I came across this recipe. Since the first time I made it, I won’t buy granola from the store anymore. It’s so much better than any granola I have ever bought at the store! The granola comes out soft with a light crispiness to it. It’s perfect for topping on your oatmeal in the morning or just as a snack. And my son loves it! I hope you enjoy this awesome, simple recipe!
