2 1/2 c. rolled oats
3 T. sesame seeds
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. roughly chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, mix oats and sesame seeds.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine oil, syrup, brown sugar, and salt. Stir often for 2-3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Pour over oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
Transfer mixture to rimmed baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake 20-25 minutes or until crisp and golden, stirring occasionally.
Remove from oven and stir in pecans. Cool completely.
Notes: Walnuts are less expensive than pecans and we always have them on hand, so that's what we use.
