Orange & Toasted Pecan Granola

Orange & Toasted Pecan Granola

Can you tell that I recently got a crazy huge bag of pecans from my parents?

Pecans are great, but Texas pecans are the greatest.  I have become quite the pecan snob, which is a lot to say since ’twas but a few years ago that I claimed to hate the things.  Thank goodness for maturing taste buds, because I just don’t think my life was complete prior to my pecan love.

It’s true.  I mean it.

Anyway, granola is not something that I normally love to eat in anything other than yogurt.  I don’t know why, but I adore the crunch I get when eating it in creamy Greek yogurt, but milk does nothing for me.  Eating it straight out of the bag (or pan) does nothing for me.  But yogurt?  I’ll take seconds or thirds pleaseandthankyou!
