Apple A Day Granola

Apple Granola00Apple Granola01

I call this flavor, Apple A Day… You know what they say.
My granola is
infused with cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and apple sauce. It also has sunflower seeds, chia seeds, raisins and pecans. Sweetened with no more than 3 Tbsp of Maple Syrup.

Any granola brand you buy in a box comes with maybe 2 or 3 different sweeteners and it’s the first or second ingredient on the ingredients’ list. That means it is what it has the most of. And we don’t need that. We want to taste the oats, differentiate the apple flavor from the spices and enjoy the crunch. We don’t want refined sugar, never.

Try it at home. It’s super easy to make. You can customize your own favorite combinations.

Ingredients
– Rolled Oats*, cut into pieces pecans, raisins, sunflower seeds, chia seeds.
Syrup: 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup, 1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil, 1/3 C of Apple Sauce. Cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, sea salt and pepper.

Directions
– (Choose how much granola you want to make. I made like 10 C of granola using 4 C of Rolled Oats and 1/2 C of each seed)
– On a big bowl throw the rolled oats and seeds. Mix.
– On another bowl mix in the “syrup” ingredients. Whatever you want your granola to taste like goes here. Mix well. You can even heat it up on a sauce pan for a more bold flavor. When done, combine oats with syrup. Use your hands to get the syrup all over the oats.
– Spread granola on a large rectangular oven pan. Use parchment paper. The thinner the layer of granola, the crunchier.
– Bake for 15 min. Let it cool down and enjoy.

Use your senses to create your own granola. Mix different dried fruit, seeds and spices.
I ate my granola on a green smoothie bowl, this morning. Blending spinach, celery, peaches, bananas, and coconut water. Dropped a generous cup of granola and banana slices. That was for breakfast.
