D, my darling king of the granola, made this one. I came home from a holiday lunch with a friend to see a pan of it on the stove top. I proceeded to eat it as often as possible until it was gone. This stuff is so good. The pecans got nice and toasty, but didn’t burn. That’s a problem D and I have had with some other granolas that ask you to toast the nuts with the rest of the ingredients. The granola is wonderful with some dried fruit in it, which we added as desired rather than mixing it in with the entire batch. D and I must both note that the chocolate chips are wholly unnecessary. This is enough of a yummy treat already. Oh, and we can’t forget the awesome vanilla paste B got for me. It made another star appearance in this one.
Ah, It’s been gone for a couple weeks, and I miss this granola already.
