This is my go to granola recipe, I've made it several times and I'm about to go out to get ingredients to make more! I love using it in a muffin recipe from Nigella Lawson. There's more than one use for muffins.

Try to use real maple syrup. It makes all the difference. I made 2 batches and 1 with fake syrup and 1 with Coombs Farm maple syrup https://amzn.to/2ExWKaM . It is night and day.
