Toasted Coconut Maple Granola Recipe

I love home-made granola; it is simple to make and much better (and less expensive) than store-bought versions. For this recipe, I kept the ingredients simple: old fashioned rolled oats, lots of unsweetened coconut, and real maple syrup. The maple syrup was gifted to us by our French-Canadian neighbors, and it is the best I have ever had. We hope you enjoy this simple staple that can be used as a topping for yogurt or paired with a milk of choice.
