Cranberries… they are zesty, tangy, and bursting with red freshness! They evoke autumn hues and a celebratory flavor. When you think of fresh cranberries does your mouth pucker just at the mere thought of them as mine does? I have been doing some interesting reading on cranberries and I want you to know that we need to embrace that lip puckering sourness. Sour taste increases bile production from the liver. Bile breaks up fat into little tiny bits that are easier to digest, a process called emulsification. By flushing bile, sour taste assists the liver in detoxifying the blood. Cranberries are also high in antioxidants which detoxifies free radicals. In this recipe I added the complimentary flavor of orange as well. Did you know that orange zest stimulates metabolism and reduces stomach stagnation?
Make a batch of this granola and once it is done, enjoy the sumptuous flavors that will tantalize your taste buds. Just be aware that without you even realizing it … a whole host of wonderful health benefits are taking place in your body. Sneaky huh? :)
For the spices in this recipe I used the contents of the Fire Light Chai Tea bags. I simply cut the bags open and poured them into my batter. I love using teas in this manner because you can find really unique flavor combinations.
