***Chocolate Granola: Add 2 Tbsp. cocoa or cacao powder to oats and mix well before adding wet ingredients. You can include the cinnamon or eliminate it. Instead of maple syrup and water, just do 1 cup of maple syrup and no water to give a bit more sweetness.

Yes, a simple syrup would work. Just dissolve equal parts sugar into hot or boiling water. 1 cup sugar = 1 cup water. It works as a great substitute.
