How to Make It
Make the compote. Cook all compote ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until syrupy, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; discard orange peel strips.
Make the waffles. Combine granola and 2 cups of the milk in a large bowl; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, place butter in a microwavable bowl, and microwave on high until melted, about 1 minute. Let cool 3 minutes.
Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir together melted butter, eggs, and remaining 1 cup milk in a separate bowl.
Add brown sugar to granola mixture, and stir until dissolved. Stir in butter mixture. Add flour mixture, and stir until incorporated. Gently fold in strawberries.
Heat waffle iron to medium, and coat with cooking spray. Scoop a heaping 3/4 cup into each section of waffle iron. Cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with compote and, if you'd like, syrup or powdered sugar.
