Maple Pecan Granola

This maple pecan granola is a vegan, gluten free breakfast, snack, or even dessert! It’s got protein added in too to give it a little flavor and the added protein keeps me full longer. Maple pecan is one of my all time favorite combos. I love making maple roasted pecans during the holidays soon!
