From the Test Kitchen

Every week we're bringing you a selection of Add-ons—a mix of our favorite appetizers, sides, desserts, or breakfast options that you can add to your box and fill out your table. Perfect for snacking or sprinkling onto yogurt, this crunchy granola features rolled oats tossed with coconut chips, maple syrup, cocoa powder, and warming spices like cinnamon and cardamom. We're toasting it in the oven until delightfully crisp, then finishing it off with chewy bites of dried tart cherries.
