Notes

Substitute the pecans for any nut of choice. Almond slices, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and pistachios are all great options too.
If using pecans or walnuts, add them into the granola after toward the end of baking to avoid burning (for about the last 20 minutes)
Use honey in place of maple syrup if desired.
Cooking times may vary based on oven.
