Grain-Free Vanilla and Orange Granola

Granolas are often packed with sugar and more recently the market has been swarmed with 'healthier' alternatives, however, the sugar content in these granolas are also rather high. Making your own granola at home allows you to adjust the sweetness accordingly.
