Homemade Apple Pie Granola Recipe
But making your own homemade granola is so easy (really it is, I promise) and you can flavor it up however you want. In the past I have shared my orange cranberry granola recipe and now I present you with this homemade apple pie granola flavor which is perfect for fall (or any time of the year really!)
Step 1: Gather your ingredients
The ingredients are simple:
- 3 1⁄2 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1⁄2 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1⁄4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1⁄4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
- 1⁄8 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 1⁄4 Cup Brown Sugar, light or dark
- 1⁄4 Cup Apple Sauce
- 1 Cup Chopped Dried Apples, divided
- 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
Step 2: Add oats, oil and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
Step 3: Mix it all together well until all the oats are coated with the oil.
Step 4: Spread the mixture on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake for 10 minutes at 375°.
Step 5: Transfer mixture back into mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup dried apples.
Step 6: Add the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, brown sugar and apple sauce to the cooked oats and apple mixture and mix well.
Step 7: Press the granola mixture back into the foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with the maple syrup. Bake at 300° for one hour.
Step 8: Let the granola cool completely and then break it apart, add the remaining 1/2 cup dried apples and then store in a air tight container.
It really is just that simple!
