With Fall just around the corner, its time for an all time favorite…… Granola.
Granola is a great treat. You can pack it in the kids lunch, in your bag when travelling, add as a yogurt topping and more. Apples and cinnamon are classic fall flavors, and they both come together to create this healthy granola recipe. It’s crunchy, sweet, and perfectly spiced.
- ¼ cup raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
- 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin organic coconut oil
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup of wheat germ
- ¼ cup coarsely chopped raw walnuts
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp. ground cloves
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- 1 medium apple, cored, chopped
- ¼ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Line baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Heat honey and oil in small saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes or until oil has melted.
Add extract; mix well. Set aside.
Combine oats, wheat germ, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a large mixing bowl; mix well.
Add honey mixture, apple, and raisins; mix until oats are evenly coated.
Place on prepared baking pan; spread evenly in a thin layer.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until granola is light golden brown and crisp.
Cool granola completely (it will get more crisp as it cools).
Enjoy ~ Until Next Time
