Pecan Pie Granola

The other day I made Pecan Pie Larabars.  They came out really good.  I had some leftover pecans, so I wanted to try a Pecan Pie Granola.  I love granola and eat it almost every day.  It keeps me full until lunchtime, which is something that cold cereal could never do.

I was really happy with the outcome of this pecan pie granola so I am sharing it with all of you!  This makes a great afternoon snack as well.  I used ground vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract in this recipe and it really makes a difference.  I buy it off Amazon and I love the stuff.

  1. This sounds good. I just bought a bunch or granola making supplies off, I'll be making some soon. I like that you used apple sauce instead of oil. I've never thought of that.
  2. What brand of ground vanilla beans do you use from Amazon? There are a bunch of brands, and they all range so much in price! Thanks so much! Just discovered your site and so excited to explore and try the recipes!
    1. I am glad you found me. :) This is the kind I buy. A little goes a long way so I think the price is worth it. It smells so good it.
  3. Does it still work to use vanilla extract? That's all I have, and I would really love to make some tomorrow! Thanks!
    1. I have not tried to freeze this, but I imagine it would freeze okay. I keep mine in the fridge and it lasts a few weeks.
  4. Have you tried using honey instead of the maple syrup? I have made granola before using honey and oil but I am thinking about trying it with honey and applesauce instead.
  5. Love this! I am eating it right now. Easy, and the perfect texture -- I'm not fond of granola with huge chunks or that's too hard. Good call on the vanilla beans!
  6. I just discovered your site a couple weeks ago when we decided to "clean-up" our eating. I love the brussel sprouts recipe and can't wait to get home from work and make this granola! Oh, and the apple & pear quinoa sounds great. I'm definitely going to make this in the fall when we have pears again!
  7. My husband and I just finished making it sooo good! We DEFINITELY shouldn't have made it right before dinner, we keep snacking on it....guess dinner will have to wait! :)
