Happy Friday and Happy October! I love this month SO much. I’m sharing one of my favorite granola recipes because it’s FALL! I know we’re not all about to run out and make our own applesauce, but if you can get your hands on some local, fresh applesauce, then DO IT. It will make this recipe THAT much better!
You know I obviously LOVE granola, my entire company is GRANOLA! I’m starting to put together an e-book on my business, how we started and what we’ve learned along the way. It’s going to be geared towards the food business, so if anyone has any questions, leave them here or email them to me!
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup puffed rice or 3 cups total oats
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened organic applesauce
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 1/4 cup raw sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients EXCEPT raw almonds & pepitas and mix. Then add wet ingredients and mix to combine until all ingredients are incorporated. Spread out on a baking sheet covered by a silpat, aluminum foil or wax paper. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven. Flip the granola over and baked for 15 more minutes until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to cool completely. Granola will harden while cooling. Add pumpkin seeds and almonds when cool.
If you don’t want to make your own granola, then head over to Blissful Eats and get some of our (Paleo/Vegan) Apple Cinnamon Harvest!
Have a GREAT weekend!
