This Apple Pie Granola Recipe Is All the Best Parts of Apple Pie Rolled into One Easy to Make, Easy to Serve, and Relatively Healthy Breakfast or Snack Food. These parts include warm cinnamon, cozy nutmeg, and delicious apple-y goodness.
This apple pie granola uses the same basic recipe as the pumpkin pie version, but it makes a few substitutions to truly bring out the flavor of the apple pie.
It makes a wonderful breakfast when served with vanilla yogurt and topped with some sliced apple. As a sweet and rather healthful dessert, it goes wonderfully well when served with vanilla ice cream.
Granola is a delicious food that may also be eaten by the handful as a snack whenever you have the urge.
⅓ cup coconut oil melted.
⅓ cup apple cider or apple juice.
1 tablespoon vanilla extract.
3 cups of rolled, not quick, oats with a large flake size.
1 ounce of pecans, chopped.
3 tablespoons of sugar with a dark brown color.
1 tablespoon apple pie spice.
1/2 milliliter of ground cinnamon.
1 teaspoon salt.
1 cup of dried apples with the pieces cut.
Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with either parchment paper or aluminum foil and preheating the oven to 300 degrees.
Blend the melted oil, cider, and vanilla extract in a large bowl and whisk to combine all of the ingredients. Stir to combine all of the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the dried apples, then add those to the bowl with the oats and nuts.
After spreading the granola out in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet, place it in the oven and let it bake for an hour without stirring it.
After one hour, take the dish out of the oven and immediately mix in the dry apples that have been chopped.
After allowing it to cool, transfer it to an airtight container so that it can be stored for up to a month.
Ideas and Suggestions
Wait to add the dry apples until after the dish has been baked. Incorporate them into the granola while it is still hot from the oven; however, if you bake them along with the rest of the mixture, they are likely to become charred.
It would be a fantastic alternative if you used apple cider syrup instead of apple cider, and you could get apple cider syrup from the store or create it yourself.
After approximately half an hour, you should start monitoring the granola to make sure it hasn’t gotten too dark. Although you will be cooking this on a low and slow temperature, you should always err on the side of caution.
