Handy Hint

<p>The granola can be eaten on its own or with milk for breakfast, sprinkled over yogurt or ice-cream, and of course left out on a dish for Santa's reindeer on Christmas Eve (that's what we did and called it Reindeer Food).</p> <p>The almonds can be left out for those with a nut allergy or you can use chopped pecans, cashews, or other nuts.</p> <p>The same goes for the cranberries, you can substitute any other dried fruit.</p>
