With Style and a Little Grace: Honey Pecan and Cranberry Granola

Honey Pecan and Cranberry Granola


I buy granola all the time and have been threatening making my own for months and now that I have done it there is no going back. It is so easy and I had 90%of  the ingredients I needed already in my pantry. This recipe baking in my oven made my whole house smell like Fall - so warm and welcoming. I may never buy store bought again. 

I plan on eating my granola in the mornings for breakfast with yogurt but there are tons of ways you can eat it - it's pretty tasty on its own as well. I also love it mixed with fresh fruit! The crispness of the oats and pecans mixed with the cranberries is the perfect mix of sweet and salty. It is so delicious. 


INGREDIENTS

3 cups of old fashioned oats 
1 3/4 cups pecans
1/3 cup honey 
3 tablespoons unsalted butter  melted 
Dash of salt 

*1 cup cranberries mixed in after everything is cooked 

Mix all ingredients together and lay out on parchment and pan. Bake at 300 for 15 minutes - take out and mix granola to bake the other side. Bake for 15 minutes. Take out and let cool. Once cool mix in cranberries and store in air-tight containers. It will stay fresh for 3-4 weeks. 

Have you ever made your own granola? What is your favorite kind?
