Coconut Cranberry Granola

I found the recipe I’m sharing today by chance.  I was looking through a feature post on the Javelin Warrior’s Cooking w/ Luv and stumbled across The Cilantropist.  The name was too much and I had to check out the site.  I love a witty food pun.  I was on the hunt for a fantastic recipe to send to my Foodie Pen Pal.  When I found this granola recipe, I knew it would be perfect.

Then, when Maddie from Thriftary offered to have me guest post it was serendipity.  This granola has Maddie’s name written all over it.  This granola is delicious and full of flavor, not to mention healthy.  I’m loving it with some Greek or vanilla yogurt.
