Homemade Granola

Last night I made some homemade granola for breakfasts and snacks during the week.  I tasted it before I put it in the oven, and new it was a winner!  I got this recipe from Polly on her blog and website.   
Here is the recipe:

Homemade Granola

2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 c. slivered almonds (raw, not roasted yet!)
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. canola oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all together by hand. Spread onto cookie sheet and bake at 325* til golden brown, stirring often approx. 30 minutes.  Cool on waxed paper and store in an airtight container.

Warning -- this is SO good you may eat it all in one day!  I love it on top of vanilla yogurt, or whatever flavor I have on hand.  SO yummy!
