Homemade Cranberry Orange Granola

By  | Last Updated:  

Are you thinking of back-to-school food ideas yet? After making this DELICIOUS granola, I’m thinking it will be an awesome addition to a kid’s lunchbox. Besides being dairy free, it’s peanut free so it’s school safe, too. Of course, you don’t have to limit enjoying this yummy granola to school days!

Cranberry Orange Granola

I like that this cranberry-orange granola is full of real foods and it’s not labor intensive to make. If you have a junior sized helper measuring things out, putting it together might go a little slower than if you did it all yourself, but the laughter and memories are definitely worth it! Sampling your efforts together is highly recommended.

Organic at Kroger

It was really easy to find everything I needed at the Kroger marketplace where I bought my ingredients. Instead of having to go to the far side of the store to shop for specialty items, the organic and natural choices were displayed right next to the regular products. I applaud not having to spend precious time hunting all over the store!

Non Dairy Yogurt Options

Since becoming a mom, I’m more aware of choosing healthier eating habits (gone are my single days of ice cream for dinner!). Although we do enjoy dairy products like Horizon Organic, I’m also a big fan of dairy alternatives like Silk and So Delicious. I appreciate I can find it all at Kroger.

This granola is great for snacking on its own and since it transports so easily it’s super as an easy add-on for yogurt (dairy or dairy alternative) too. Bet you’ll thank me when school starts.
