    GREAT RECIPE ! EASY AND I HAVE USED A COMBINATION OF PECANS AND ALMONDS. SO MANY POSSIBILITIES WITH THE DRIED FRUIT AS WELL.

    Yummy and so easy. A great way to use up the little bits of nuts left over from holiday baking too. I used macadamia and walnuts instead of pecans. Delish!

    This is an awesome recipe! So easy and so delicious. I was making it for my Christmas gifts and my girls actually passed up Gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread and instead begged to have some granola!!
