Paleo Pumpkin Cranberry Granola

Posted on November 18, 2014

Pumpkin Cranberry Granola makes a great grain-free breakfast or healthy snack. This festive fall granola recipe is made with almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and a touch of honey, and it is darn delicious!

I also get a kick out of using the term “granola” to ridicule my Boulder brethren. However, when I’m feeling earthy, dousing myself in patchouli (which my husband dislikes to no end) I can easily apply the term to myself –even though I’m more of a yuppie than a hippie. I guess that would make me a yippie.

Alas, I digress. Several years ago when I […]
