Every year during the holidays I bake a handful of pecan pies. One for my brother-in-law, one for a holiday dinner, some for put-lucks and one of them is to keep at home. I can’t resist a good pecan pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. There’s just something about the combination of a warm peace of pie and melting ice cream. YUM! Don’t you agree?

Another great idea is to turn this pecan pie granola into a granola mix by adding your favorite chocolate, for me that’s dark chocolate, and by adding more coconut flakes. Take it with you to your next trail walk. Or enjoy it after your workout of the day. For some of us, it’s a great snack for car line! Raise your hand if you are with me.

My girls are always outdoors, out and about, on practice, rehearsals, or riding bike. You can usually find them snacking on some homemade granola. What’s your favorite granola flavor? Do you add chocolate, fruits or both?
