APPLE CINNAMON GRANOLA- CLEAN EATING

This granola is healthy, hearty and delicious. You can add whatever dried fruit you want. I prefer cranberries because I love the tartness of cranberries; raisins would also be delicious or you can leave the dried fruit out all together.

If you have any Slow Cooker Organic Applesauce in the refrigerator this is a great recipe to use it in.

I think the best part of this recipe is all the wonderful granola clusters it makes, just be careful not to break apart the clusters when you are flipping the granola in the oven.

Apple Cinnamon Granola- Clean Eating
Slightly adapted from my Cranberry Granola recipe
Makes approximately 5 1/2 cups of granola

4 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or Slow Cooker Organic Applesauce
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey, (or to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dried cranberries, raisins or dried fruit of choice (optional)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, coconut, and spices.

In a separate bowl, combine apple sauce, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.

Combine both mixtures and pour onto a large sheet pan. Cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes, stirring every 30 minutes to achieve an even color. Remove from oven, add dried fruit and mix until evenly distributed.

Granola will become crunchier as it cools. Once cooled store in an airtight container.
 
I think this is way better than store bought cereal, especially with ingredients you can trust.
