Baked Brie Recipe with Vanilla Bean Granola

Baked Brie with Blackberry Lemon Compote

March 12, 2018

We're excited about this recipe that our food blogger friend Kim made to show off our vanilla bean granola. The granola complements the creamy brie with a nice buttery crunch – the bright, ripe flavors of blackberry and lemon cut through the richness, running their juices through this sweet pool of indulgence, all to be enhanced by the aroma of fresh rosemary. 

Did someone just say rosemary? We think this could be good with our rosemary granola too ;)


  • 1 wheel of brie cheese
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries (plus extra for garnish)
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sprigs of rosemary for garnish
  • Lemon zest for garnish
  • Handful of bumble & butter vanilla granola


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the top rind off brie wheel and set aside, allowing it to come to room temperature. Once at room temperature, bake in oven for 13-15 min. 

While the brie is baking, heat a saucepan over medium heat with blackberries, honey, lemon juice and vanilla. Allow to boil and thicken into a syrup, while coarsely breaking down chunks of blackberry.

When 15 minutes, or when the brie starts to melt and bubble, take it out of the oven. 

Pour compote over the brie. Garnish with fresh blackberries, rosemary, and lemon zest. Top with a handful of vanilla bean granola, serve with crackers, and enjoy~

Okay, we all know nothing says comfort like a bowl of mac & cheese. We'd probably eat it more if it wasn't laden with heavy ingredients, but we recently tried out this recipe using a vegan queso sauce. Our granola adds the finishing touch: while it's not vegan, it brings the whole dish together with the crunch, the touch of sweetness coming from the honey, and the extra cheesiness.

The warm, zingy lemon farro balances perfectly with a sweet carrot sauce made from a carrot juice reduction and luscious mascarpone cheese. It gets a hint of sharpness and depth from dijon mustard, and is topped with a poached egg for oozing perfection.
