Maple Pecan Granola

3 cups old fashioned whole oats
1 cup pecan pieces
1/3 cup real maple syrup
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup light brown sugar

2. Combine oats and pecan pieces in a medium bowl. Set aside. In 2-cup glass measure, combine maple syrup, butter, sugar and salt. Microwave, uncovered, until butter is melted, about 90 seconds.
