    Pumpkin Cranberry Granola

    Granola is probably one of the easiest things to make yet I don’t do it nearly enough. It’s one of those things you buy out of convenience at the grocery store and curse at yourself every time you buy a bag because 1. it’s so damn expensive and 2. you just know these companies’ margins are killer because they feed on the convenience haha

    Anyway, this is just me singing my love for granola.

    I eat it as cereal, I eat it as a snack, I put them in my Greek yogurt; just about any way to eat granola, I will eat it.

    Oh, another thing that is convenience yet you can easily make at home? Pumpkin pie spice.

    There is nothing I don’t love about this granola. It’s got my favorite dried fruit, it’s got pumpkin spice covered oats, and it’s crunchy. I can’t stop picking at the tray.

    It also makes your house smell amazing! It’s definitely the best way to invite autumn into your house.
