Holiday Recipes & Traditions: Holiday Granola from Tara Janzen

Now that Thanksgiving is over we can “officially” kick off this years Holiday Recipes & Traditions. Today we have the amazing Tara Janzen sharing one of her families treats.

Here’s my recipe “Holiday Granola.” I make two kinds, always a double batch, and put it in glass jars to give away to visitors.  The problem, of course, is that it’s a little addicting!
