Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola

4.67 from 3 votes

A crunchy, festive snack and surefire mood-booster!

We love granola for breakfast. It is delicious when paired with Greek yogurt, served with almond milk and fresh fruit, or even just enjoyed plain!  Making homemade Cranberry Granola may sound a little intimidating, but it truly is quite easy. With just a little stirring and baking time, you can save quite a bit of money by not buying granola at the store.

The combinations for granola recipes are endless, but we really enjoy Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola in colder months. The color of the green pumpkin seeds and red cranberries truly get us in a festive mood!

Try Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola as part of a Sweet and Savory Parfait.

  1. Hi! Great recipe. Thinking if I were to put this in 9×9 & cut into 18 rectangles the points still remain at 7. Would you agree?
