Give your morning granola a boost with fresh apples and spices perfect for fall!
Ingredients
  • 3 c. rolled oats
  • 1 c. nuts, chopped (I used almonds)
  • 1 T. apple pie spice (or 2 t. cinnamon, 1 t. nutmeg, ½ t. ground cloves)
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • 1 apple, diced (I left the skin on but you can peel it if desired)
  • ⅓ c. coconut oil, melted
  • ½ c. applesauce
  • ¼ c. Imperial Sugar granulated sugar
  • 3 T. Imperial Sugar brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the oats, nuts, apple pie spice, salt, and apples. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine the coconut oil, applesauce, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well.
  4. Pour the sugar mixture over top of the oat mixture and mix well to combine. I ended up using my hands to mix it together.
  5. Pour the granola onto the prepared baking pan. Spread it out in a thin layer.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Break into pieces and store in an air tight container for up to 1 week.

Recipe adapted from My Food Story

*If granola gets soft you can put it in the oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes to crisp it back up*
