Cranberry Orange Granola Recipe

Let’s face it, granola in the stores is pricey. A bag of granola where I live can easily run $3.00 -$4.00 for a 16 oz. bag. But making your own is so simple and frugal too.

This cranberry orange granola recipe runs me about $1.50 in ingredients. Much cheaper. Plus, I have 100% control of the ingredients in my granola. No artificial sweeteners, colors or preservatives. Just good old-fashioned ingredients! Making it  could not be easier. It literally takes me minutes to whip up a batch of granola on a Sunday night after the kids go to bed and then I have an easy breakfast in the morning all-week long.

I like to eat my granola with a little soy milk or over some nice vanilla Greek yogurt. But, my husband likes to eat his plain – straight from the jar or bag! No matter how you like to eat your granola give this recipe a try…it’s a winner in my book!
