Homemade Granola

I wanted a quick and easy snack that I can eat at work, home or on the go. So I made some homemade granola. Granola can be made with a variety of oats, nuts seeds, dried fruits and spices. I grabbed what I had in the cabinets and concocted this version. I plan to add some dried fruit next...after a trip to the store first.
