Add in your favorites like raisins or chocolate chips to this granola. The best thing about granola is that it is super versatile and can be made in so many different ways.

The maple syrup acts as the sweetener and the glue for this granola. A pinch of salt is added for flavor.
To make this 4 ingredient Maple Pecan Granola simply toss everything together in one big bowl. Spread onto a baking sheet lined with a silicon baking mat and pop it in the oven for about 40 minutes. The granola will come out golden brown and crunchy. Stir the granola a couple of times while in the oven. Make sure to stir the granola gently so you do not break up any clumps. Allow the granola to cool completely before taking it off the baking sheet.
This granola is super addicting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ♥
