Homemade Maple Granola

I wanted to make my own granola. I inspired myself from other websites, but this is my very, very own recipe and I encourage you all to try it. The only downside is that you will be eating granola at basically any time of day since it is just that darn good.

On the plus side, this recipe is super fun to make with the children because all the ingredients are tossed together in one big bowl.
