Vanilla-Scented Granola

This has got to be one of the best granola's around! It's simple, makes the house smell AMAZING and is frightfully addicting! Which means, it doesn't last more than a day or so in this house!! I usually only make this a couple times a year and mostly around Christmas time because it's a great gift idea and like I said, super easy to make! But, who says I have to wait till Christmas to have the best granola ever?! Eat it alone or with a little plain yogurt & berries...YUMMMM and I think you'll agree!!
