Cranberry Orange Granola

Spiced Cranberry Orange Granola

It’s quite possible to create and enjoy homemade granola that is free of grains and refined sugar. It’s also quite possible to throw some holiday flavors into the mix…Mmmm, enjoy a crunchy bowl of grain-free, spiced granola highlighted with the essence of orange and cranberry. Serve this energy packed dish with cold coconut milk and fresh blueberries, again and again.

This is a flavor variation of my classic Caveman Granola recipe that uses nuts, seeds and coconut flakes to create a satisfying, crunchy, tasty granola. I like to enjoy this homemade granola with cold coconut milk. Mmmmmm….
