Notes
Like other granola recipes, you can adjust this one to match your tastes and what you have on hand. For example, you can use an equal amount of honey, brown rice syrup, or agave nectar in place of the maple syrup. You can also use an equal amount of the neutral vegetable oil of your choice in place of the coconut oil. Feel free to vary the spices to your heart's content as well.
