Cinnamon Pecan Granola

I am so excited to share this recipe today! I have been craving some tasty granola for weeks and I finally broke down and made some this morning. This granola is packed with pecans, coconut, cranberries, flaxseed meal, oatmeal and more!

When we transitioned to a plant-based diet, one of the hardest foods for me to give up was cereal. But I never thought to make my own cereal, in the form of granola.

Grieve no more! My new cereal has arrived. I am so thrilled! I’m sure I will be making this multiple times a month.

I’m in LOVE!
