This cranberry pecan granola is a wonderful recipe to get your morning going. It is vanilla and honey scented, has good crunch thanks to the pecans, and is not overly sweet. You can replace the pecans with sunflower and sesame seeds to make these nut-free. This is a perfect recipe to use in parfaits for school lunches. In a container with a tight-fitting lid, layer Greek vanilla yogurt, jam and the granola.
