Here is a super easy recipe for granola, tweaked from a combo of other recipe's i've found. No pre-cooking required, just mix together and bake. This recipe is so versatile, try adding dried cranberries raisins or blueberries after it's cooked. Try using walnuts, maple flavouring and maple syrup mmmmmm. Don't leave out the coconut, it's the secret ingredient and isn't a noticeable taste!

- 1⁄3 cup dark brown sugar (or golden)
