Cranberry Granola Clusters

Cranberry Granola Clusters

Who doesn't love granola? Cause you can just leave rn.

Jokes.

But this is my favourite thing just in CLUSTER from aka bite size morsels of happiness. I love dried berries once they're baked (caramelised, extra chewy little speckles of greatness) so I went with a cranberry and cinnamon combo. You could go wild though! 

It is quick, easy, adaptable to whatever you have in your cupboard, and packs protein, fibre and crunch all in one. Fantastic!

PS - that is my current favourite word and people who throw around 'fantastic' in a sentence like it ain't nothing go right to the top of my 'most trusted' list.
