- 1 1/2 tbsp greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbs apple juice
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine oats and pecans with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Spread out on a baking sheet in a thin layer and bake for 4-6 minutes until golden and toasted. Remove and set aside. Reduce oven temp to 325°.
