This protein-packed nut and seed granola makes a terrific holiday gift; it's easy to make pretty by putting it in a wide mouth mason jar and adding a bit of butchers twine to affix your gift tag. If you like granola clusters (everyone does, right?), resist stirring the granola after it comes out of the oven and let it cool completely before breaking it into clumps. Kept in a sealed container, Mixed nut granola with sour cherries and figs will keep for about 10 days to 2 weeks.
