Holiday Granola

A festive granola filled with holiday flavors

Granola

I’m back today with a festive granola recipe after an unintended hiatus from blogging (but definitely not baking.) At first I was just going to take a couple days off surrounding Thanksgiving, but then I lost motivation to create new recipes.

I’m excited to get back in the groove of things sharing great recipes for the holidays.

First up is this granola recipe. It is filled with all my favorite holiday flavors – pumpkin, pecans, cranberries – and many more.

This would make a great light holiday breakfast, filling, but not too heavy.
