Preheat your oven to 425°F. Lightly brush each baguette slice with olive oil and place on a baking sheet in a single layer. Toast until lightly browned (about 5 minutes).
Remove from oven and top each with a slice of Brie. Place back in oven for about 5 minutes or just until the brie begins to melt. Remove from oven. Top with thin apple slices, pecans and drizzle with honey.
