You will love the sweet toasted flavor of homemade granola. This version has cranberries, orange extract and walnuts – typical ingredients of the holidays. It makes a great gift when packaged in glass jars or cellophane bags.
Preheat oven to 250°F. Mix brown sugar, egg whites, oil, ginger and orange extract in small bowl until well blended. Set aside.

Bake 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cook time. Cool completely on wire rack. Stir in dried cranberries. Store in airtight container up to 1 week.
