Easy Maple Granola

This is my first time making Granola and it is very good. I make refridgerator oatmeal yogurt and this granola goes very well with that or all by itself. I just posted Granola Bites with Figs & Dates that this Granola is used in. It has been a big hit with our family. It is from a healthy cookbook. And once again I am not taking credit for it we just loved it and wanted to share. I made a few changes to the original; I added extra Tablespoon each of oil, maple syrup and honey because it needed a little more moisture.
