It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Fig Season! Figs are so pretty, so delicious, and so fleeting on the east coast. We can barely find fresh figs for more than 2 weeks here! So note to self: always buy fresh figs whenever you see them at the farmers market.
One of the great things about this recipe is you actually don’t need fresh figs at all! You could just as easily use dried figs. If you are using dried figs, you should add the figs after you have cooked the rest of the mixture.
What’s your favorite way to eat granola? I served mine with plain yogurt. But if I am being honest, this picture is nearly a 1 to 1 ratio yogurt to granola
