Mom's Simple Granola

My Mom literally makes this granola every other day. It barely makes it off the cookie sheet before it is gone. Great as a cereal with milk, as a snack, as a topping to yogurt, OR dare I say, a topping to create fruit crisp. I like to make mine with milk chocolate chips or dried cranberries, but you can add any extras you like!
