Crunchy, Nutty Amazingness!

I love granola. It’s crunchy, nutty and has a hint of sweetness! It is delicious on top of yogurt, cottage cheese, applesauce or oatmeal, but I am sometimes skeptical of store bought brands. They always seem to be dense with added sugar, so I decided to make it at home. The nice thing is I know what I put in it, and you can customize it to what you like! Oh, and the recipe is simple!
