Notes

Tips & Variations for Pumpkin Spice Granola:
  • Do not add the dried cranberries and walnuts until the granola has cooled all the way.  You will end up with burnt nuts and hard as rocks cranberries if you add them any earlier. 
  • How to store the granola:  Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
