Maple Syrup Granola

When we first moved here, I found a delicious granola in our local supermarket. It was healthy and tasty and everyone loved it. The problem was that it was $18 for a bag that we went through in under two weeks. It didn’t take long for me to start making our own. We use maple syrup, but I’m sure it would be great with honey. We don’t put dried fruit in because child #1 doesn’t like dried fruit in her granola. This is child #2′s favourite meal—almost always mixed with homemade yogurt.
