Cranberry Salted Maple Granola

There is something oddly comforting about granola to us. It is so comforting that we will on occasion buy a Costco-sized bag of granola meant to feed a family of 6 for a few weeks time, and polish it off in 32 hours. Is that braggy? Maybe.

Are you a commercial watching person or a game watching person? The Super Bowl is kind of the perfect social event, because it offers entertainment for everyone. If you are a sports guy, you can enjoy an incredible and competitive game (usually!) and witness some incredible plays. If you are a music lover, the halftime show is sure to entertain you on some level. If you live for dad jokes and weird humor, the commercials never disappoint.

We wanted to help you create a Super Bowl classic, Buffalo Chicken Dip, while giving it a healthier spin to ensure you enjoy every second of game day in the healthiest way. Continue reading
