For my third offering for #BacktoSchool recipes I chose to make granola, which I made with cranberries and pecans. It is good as a small bagged snack or as a topping for yogurt.

Forgive that I am not adding more write-up as there has been a death in the family, and I just wanted to get this up for now, since I am posting with a blogging group.

See you again soon-
