Easy Microwave Granola

Place 1 cup quick oats in a bowl. Drizzle 1 tbsp vegetable oil, then ¼ cup maple syrup, and stir to mix evenly. Microwave, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 3 min. Stir in dried cranberries or blueberries and pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds). Spread on a baking sheet to let cool. Granola will keep well in an airtight container for up to a week.
