Recently, I changed up  my base Fruit & Honey Granola recipe – and turned it into a fabulous Chocolate Cranberry Granola! It’s so tasty. I love dark chocolate paired with almost anything, but it’s really nice with the tart cranberries. This granola is just the right combination of sweet, tart, and chocolate. Love it!

Here’s what I did to make my Homemade Chocolate Cranberry Granola.
