Cranberry Orange Pecan Granola

Orange Pecan Granola My Body My Kitchen Whole Grains Breakfast Greek Yogurt

Forget your boring granola! Here’s a tastier way to add whole grains to your breakfast. This orange pecan granola packs a punch of flavor and will add some life to your breakfast. 

In this recipe I added quinoa for some extra crunch, as I did with my Chocolate Cherry Granola and Spiced Quinoa Oat Granola. However, you can substitute the quinoa for additional oats.
