Cocoa Hazelnut Granola

I LOVE almost every ingredient in this recipe.  It was super easy to make and filled that big jar, the little jar and then a small bowl for a snack right then.

This made my apartment smell so good!  Mine did not clump the way the recipe says it should.  But I am ok with that.  I also tried them with milk, like cereal, and it was really good.  And for those of you who know me too well, it was a small amount so it did not get soggy.  I hate soggy cereal.
