When September hits, immediately I crave apple pie, I love a good apple pie, especially one with ice cream…YUM. While I know it’s not September…you need to know that I just couldn’t wait for something “apple”. So, I had to make my apple pie granola. I just love this recipe…and I love granola. I can eat granola with some milk in the morning or some yogurt in the afternoon, as a snack and sometimes I eat granola as a little snack late at night.
You will find this granola recipe is very different then your traditional recipes as this one tastes like an apple pie. It even starts out with apple juice that you concentrate, I’m not saying that this is a super healthy recipe, but it doesn’t use as much oil as some that I have made before. I made this apple pie granola recipe yesterday and Kelsi came home and nibbled on some of it…she was so cute as she’s like “mom it feels like Christmas with this granola”, I think it’s all that cinnamon!
Traditionally I tend to use cranberries and blueberries, in this recipe I use dehydrated apples that I chop, it adds great texture.
So, I mixed my nuts with the seasonings
I took my whole dehydrated apple
and chopped it up
mixed my oatmeal, nuts, seasonings and chopped dehydrated apples in a bowl and tossed
I added the apple juice, oil and honey and tossed again
I placed it on my lined sheet and sprinkled my brown sugar and coconut on top
I baked it for 10 minutes and tossed…see how “wet” it looks?
10 more minutes…still “wet”
10 more minutes…all done!
I let it cool off completely before I put it in my beautiful glass dish.
I know you will like this very simple and easy recipe!
