Homemade Granola

My sister-in-law gave us some of her homemade granola for Christmas. It was so yummy, I had to get the recipe. I made a few tweaks, like switching from canola oil to coconut oil. Sent my son a big batch to his office and he said everyone said it’s addictive. So, there you have it. Healthy & addictive.
