2. Gluten-Free Cranberry Curd Tart

6. Big Sky Granola

My kids could eat a barrel of this granola. When they come into town for the holidays, I better have a huge jar of this granola or else there will be trouble. Serve on top of ice cream, over a bowl of yogurt with fresh berries or just simply as a breakfast cereal. Pack for hiking or as a snack to give you a little energy on the slopes.

Use dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries and raisins. So good! Click HERE for the best granola recipe. and HERE for a KETO version.
