Crunchy Honey Roasted Pecan Granola

I don’t know about you, but working from home these past few months has taken me to snack city! I find myself constantly opening the fridge to take a bite of last night’s dinner, shoveling handfuls of potato chips into my mouth, or pulling out the frozen Easter candy I stashed away last month.  As the bag of kettle, honey bbq chips came to an end last night, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create a healthy, crunchy snack.  Something with a little bit of sweet, a little bit of salty, and just a little bit healthier 🙂

This roasted, honey pecan granola is the perfect crunchy, snack to have on hand.  Best of all, guilt-free and made with simple, healthy ingredients. Oh, and your home will smell like a vanilla, cinnamon candle after roasting it. What is not to love here?  In conclusion, shovel away, take that handful, and even store some away for next week. I love putting this granola over my favorite yogurt, on top peanut butter banana toast, and mixed into vanilla ice cream. This recipe is super straightforward, quick, and under 10 ingredients.
