For the past several months I’ve been on a morning yogurt kick. I top 5% plain Fage yogurt with sliced strawberries and a scoop of granola. I’m obsessed with Healthy Dark Chocolate Granola, but how healthy can it be if one can’t stop eating it. I also love America's Test Kitchen’s Almond Granola with Dried Fruit, but with changes to make it similar in taste to the The Granola Factory’s Honey Pecan flavor.
Recently my son-in-law found a recipe for Brown Butter-Pecan Granola on the Bon Appétit Magazine website. The flavor profile of this granola is cranberry orange and, for my taste, a tad sweeter than the other granolas I make. For this recipe you’ll need unsalted butter, dark brown sugar, honey, vanilla, pecans, old-fashioned oats, raw pumpkin seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, finely grated orange zest, cinnamon, kosher salt and dried cranberries. (I omitted the pumpkin seeds.)
