Kari Larsen's Maple Pecan Granola


This is fabulous!! Enjoy! Thanks Kari!

3 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. pecan pieces (I also add about a cup of raw slivered almonds)
1/3 c. real maple syrup
4 Tbsp. butter
1/3 c. light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Melt syrup, butter, sugar & salt. Drizzle over oats and nuts; toss.
Bake 15 minutes; toss. Bake additional 10 - 15 minutes. Toss again while sticky or it will get stuck to the pan. Cool completely.

You can also add dried fruit or chocolate chips (after it bakes) or whatever sounds good to you. I've always intended to try coconut with the nuts in the pre-roasting stage, but haven't wanted to mess with perfection! :)
