Place diced apples in a pot over medium heat. Sprinkle with cinnamon and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften. Set aside and allow to cool. Place about a quarter of the cooked apple and its juices into the bottom of two cups or jars. Divide the granola equally into each cup or jar, then repeat with the yogurt. Add the remaining cooked apple and its juices evenly over top of the yogurt in each cup, then finish with the toasted pecans and an additional sprinkling of cinnamon.
