How to Make Homemade Cranberry Nut Granola
Blog - February 14, 2017

I love granola.  I’ve tried so many varieties and the one I like the most is the First Watch Granola.  The thing is that it’s gets expensive buying it from a restaurant just to use for your yogurt!  So I decided to make my own.

It was so delicious I thought I’d put it in mason jars and give it as gifts.  So now I have to make more! haha.

There’s nothing better than getting a gift that is made from the heart.

It’s such a simple way to give something special and tasty too!  All I did was make granola and put in in mason jars.  I cut out a circle of fabric and wove it into the lid.  Then I just a put a ribbon around it.  I also had some stickers left over and slapped those babies on top to make it even more personal.

Here is the recipe:
