Cranberry Orange Walnut Holiday Granola

GRANOLA

My Cranberry Orange Walnut Holiday Granola is not only a tasty holiday treat, but it is also a simple and cheap homemade holiday gift!  Package it in a mason jar, add some ribbon and a cinnamon stick (if you’re feeling adventurous), and, voila, you have a thoughtful and delicious gift to give your friends and family!

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, dried coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • The juice and zest of ½ orange
  • ½ cup dried cranberries

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit
