Honey Pecan Granola

I was never a fan of granola growing up. Over time, however, my tastes have evolved, and now I’m a big fan (probably has something to do with my love for all things crunchy). I love snacking on it parfait-style, sandwiched between layers of creamy Greek yogurt and sweet and juicy strawberries. It makes a great snack and breakfast, and it is SO easy to prepare!

Honey Pecan Granola

Yield: 4 ½ Cups

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups pecans, coarsely chopped
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300°F and set aside a parchment lined baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine oats, pecans, and salt and mix well. Set aside.

Combine butter and honey in a saucepan and warm over medium-high heat, until the mixture attains a runny consistency. Pour the butter and honey mixture over the oat mixture and mix well, making sure that it is evenly coated. Transfer oats to the baking sheet, spread in an even layer, and bake until lightly golden, about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Allow granola to cool completely on baking sheet. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Loved the picture so much and you know what? I did not like granola too but I think the crunchy thing is what keeps me looking for granola recipes as well.
