Delish! This is such a simple recipe, I don't see any reason to ever buy granola again! I increased the brown sugar just a smidge and I am thinking of adding a few sliced almonds to the mix! I made only half the recipe, so decreased my baking time to only 40 minutes, which was perfect. Thanks, Ellie!
