I love homemade granola and when I see any new recipe I try it right away. This Cranberry Cacao nib granola recipe is from Dairy free Delicious cookbook.Granola with Cranberry & Cacao NibsHomemade granola is much cheaper and much better tasting than the store bought one. It is actually fun to make at home — perfect for a rainy or snowy day project. Also making it at home means I can control what is in it and you can customize any granola recipe with your favorite dry fruit and nuts.Granola with Cranberry & Cacao NibsCacao nibs are a new ingredient in my pantry. They are bits of dried, roasted and crushed cacao bean. Which means they have intense chocolate taste without the added sugar. They have a crunchy texture with a bitter chocolate flavor. They are easily available in grocery stores these days.Granola with Cranberry & Cacao NibsMy favorite way of eating granola is over some Greek yogurt along with some berries and/ or banana. I love the crunch factor in my yogurt. There’s another recipe in the same book for a bircher muesli sundae using this granola. I’m going to post that recipe soon.
