Christmas Granola

Hello!

I like granola for breakfast with some yoghurt and fresh fruit.

Buying prepacked granola can be a nasty experience, or better said: eating it.
So I went on a hunt on the internet to find a recipe. The problem was that out of a number of recipes, I didn’t really like any of them. I ended up mixing bits and pieces from various recipes and came up with one I really like. My friends like it too and when they know I’m making it, they want part of the batch.

I adjusted the recipe a bit to make one for the Christmas period by adding dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, pecans, almonds and a bit of cinnamon instead of other ingredients as mixed nuts, raisins, dried bananas and dried apricots.

Try it and let me know if you like it or not.
