This Coconut Cranberry Granola is the perfect topping for yogurt, ice cream and more! Enjoy as a snack or for breakfast

If you've never made your own granola before, you're in for a treat today! Granola is one of the easiest things to make and the possible variations are endless. 

Today I'm sharing a Coconut Cranberry Granola that my family adores. It is crunchy and sweet and we put it on almost everything including yogurt and ice cream.  
It's a great snack on its own and can be a tasty cereal in the mornings.  The granola is sweetened with honey and brown sugar and spiced slightly with cinnamon - it's divine! 

It takes all of 5 minutes to throw together and then a little bit of time in the oven. Hardly any work at all and you've got this gorgeous granola on your hands!

This is a great starting point for designing your own granola recipe. If you're not a fan of almonds, feel free to substitute for your favourite nut.

Don't like cranberries? No worries! Any  dried fruit will work and if  you're not excited by dried fruit, you can omit entirely.  

A quick way to turn this granola into a decadent treat is to omit the cranberries and stir in some mini chocolate chips and small sweets like M&M's. Yum!

A couple of quick notes: 
This recipe calls for oats and unfortunately, quick oats don't really work here.  
Maple syrup can be substituted  for the honey if desired. 
The dried cranberries can be omitted entirely or replaced with other dried fruit. 

That's it! Let's get started!
