Here in the south there is no shortage of Pecan Pie recipes.. Leading to its availability at just about anywhere.. Like the food section in the Quick Trip by my house. Although, there is something about gas station pie that screams…
Pecan Pie Granola.
You might need these:
4 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
3 tablespoons flax seeds
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup real maple syrup
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Heat oven to 350
Mix together oats, pecans, coconut and flax seeds in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the oil, syrup, brown sugar and salt. Pour oil mixture over rolling oats mixture, and toss thoroughly.
Evenly spread out oat mixture on two rimmed baking sheets .
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, until golden.
Let granola cool completely before storing in a container.
This Granola is good.. Pecan Pie would be better… but I think this is a much healthier option….
