This is of course delicious over yogurt, but it's also really good in small quantities in a salad that needs a little flavor kick. I also quite enjoy it over a bowl of cheerios. And I won't lie that sometimes it's the perfect dessert in a small bowl, eaten plain. While this is my version of choice, you can of course play around with the add-ins. I occasionally use chopped dried apricots instead of the raisins, but add them halfway through the cooking time, else I find they burn. Dried unsweetened cranberries also work well. A bit of cardamom is another nice addition, but I wouldn't go too crazy (anything more than 1/4 tsp overwhelms for me). I'm sure you could use almonds or hazelnuts in place of the pecans, but why you would ever substitute for a roasted pecan is beyond me.
