Holli Berry Granola

I love this festive granola made with red goji berries, and special holiday spices, and a yummy creamy sauce that bakes into the granola. Granola always makes my daughter Holli eat more kefir so I tried to always have it on hand. This also makes a festive gift and you will be everybody's favorite. It's so good.
