Orange Cranberry Granola

Light and crunchy, just the right amount of sweet with a subtle hint of spices to illustrate this holiday season. This granola came out perfect. As usual I made a big batch to have around as well as gift. You can cut the recipe in half if you don’t eat much granola, but this keeps for weeks, so don’t fear making a lot and putting it in a sealed jar.
