Apple Pie Granola

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it’s something you hear countless times during your life. Despite having this drilled into me, I’m still guilty of throwing down a couple of Jammy Dodgers with a cuppa while staring at the laptop. Or even skipping the meal altogether in the hope I’ll save a few calories. Very bad adulting!  In a effort to kick my bad habits I like to make a batch of homemade granola on a Sunday to last me the week.  Granted, my good intentions usually only last till Tuesday but it doesn’t stop this apple pie granola from being some of the tastiest I’ve ever made.  If anything has the capacity to get me eating breakfast, it’s this.

Whip up a batch of this delicous granola on a Sunday evening to keep you feed all week long.

I like to add mixed dried fruit to all of my granola but feel free to leave it out if you’re not a fan, I just love the little pops of colour.

Whip up a big batch of this apple pie granola and you’ll be thanking yourself every morning for days to come.


Ingredients

  • 350g rolled oats
  • 100g coconut oil, melted
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp ginger
  • 1/4tsp mixed spice
  • 1/8tsp nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C and line a large baking tray with grease proof paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix the oats, salt, spices, apples and nuts together and set aside. In a pan over a medium heat melt together the coconut oil, brown sugar, honey and apple sauce. Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mixture and mix until fully combined.

    This looks really delicious. I've been into making bircher muesli with a dollop of homemade apple sauce but will definitely give this a try 🙂
