What is your favorite way to eat granola?

I love to make granola frequently at home instead of bringing it from stores as store bought stuff is high in sugar and ingredients that are really not necessary. Plus making it at home will give you all the flexibility to add more or less of certain ingredients based on your liking, and you can also ensure the quality of ingredients that go into its making, and add flavorings that you actually love.
