How to make delicious homemade maple almond granola

 Homemade granola: the cheaper and better breakfast/snack that lasts all week

About 3 years ago, I started buying granola from my Local Food Co-Op. It was about $10/bag & it disappeared very quickly in my house. The co-op only offered my favorite flavor periodically, so I was inspired to make my own maple almond granola. You can flex any of the nuts & seeds in the recipe or increase the wet ingredients for even more clumps.
