A new breakfast favourite is coming your way!
You may not know this about me, but I’m a huge granola fanatic. I always have a container of homemade granola stored in my cabinet. (often my sweet and salty maple pecan granola) I always sprinkle some on top of my yogurt and fresh fruits for breakfast, or on top of my warm bowl of oatmeal. Sometimes I’ll also just pour some in in a( little cup and enjoy it as a snack with a coffee or tea. (I highly recommend this rather than reaching for a cookie to eat with your tea.)
This fig and walnut granola is my latest granola obsession for fall. It’s warming spices and toasty walnuts just make it feel extra comforting in the cold weather. Not to mention the sweet chewy dried figs are just so yummy and provide a great chewy texture to compliment the crunchy walnuts and buckwheat!
