Granola can be a pretty pricey grocery store item. However, it is very easy to make your own at home. If you can buy the ingredients in bulk and/or on sale, you will further reduce the cost. If maple syrup is out of the budget, you can easily substitute honey.

    Just wondering, what does the milk do? I made this last time and it was GREAT! I’ve been requested to make it again and I’m doing it tomorrow… this time with both maple syrup and honey because that’s what I have around.

    I was just wondering what the powdered milk did?

      I have no idea. But, I’m sure I’ve omitted it before. 🙂

      @Lori Hurley, It would add some protein for sure! Thanks for the great recipe.

    can i use veg oil or olive oil instead of canola oil? If i use honey instead of maple syrup how much should i use. thanks

      Yes, I sub in whatever oil or sweetener I have on hand. I think equal substitution should be fine.
