Pecan Pie Granola

If I had to pick a favorite dessert it would have to be pecan pie.  I love the sticky sweet filling and the crunchy baked pecans, but I never eat the crust.  Which is funny because with fruit pies I only eat the crust and leave the filling.  I have pie problems.

I took my favorite flavors from traditional pecan pie and created this chewy granola.  I’ve just been eating it by the handful, but it would also be good with milk or yogurt.  YUM.  Any excuse to have “dessert” for breakfast is ok with me.

Pecan Pie is the 2nd best (Pumpkin Pie is my top spot) but I have not been able to really eat it because its just not good for me. I like how this recipe includes some oats and has portion control. Everything in moderation!
