My Homemade Maple Granola

I made this 2 Christmases ago as gifts. It was a big hit. Now I just make it for us when I feel like it. :)

2 c. dry oats
2/3 c. nuts, chopped (optional) - I did 1/2 with almonds & 1/2 without
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. good maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix nuts, brown sugar, oats, syrup, cinnamon & vanilla.
Spread on a sprayed baking stone with sides (or a sheet pan).
Top with small pieces of butter.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Stir to crumble.
Let cool completely.
Store in airtight container.

*Can add 1/3 c raisins or coconut or dried fruit after baking if desired.
