Crunchy granola

Homemade granola can be a healthy, comforting and delicious treat. Most of the store-bought stuff is high in sugar.

I love homemade granola for its versatility. You can use so many different ingredients and get different flavors every time!

This crunchy granola is vegan, gluten free, soy free, refined sugar free and it’s made with delicious pecans and dried cranberries. Yum!
