Apple Spice Granola
3 1/2 Cups regular Oats
2 1/2 Cups puffed Rice
1 Tbls Cinnamon
3/4 tsp Salt
Pinch of Nutmeg
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Applesauce
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla
Up to 1 1/2 Cups chopped nuts
Up to 1 Cup dried fruit
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients–and mix well
Spread onto baking sheet ( I like to use parchment paper)
350 degree oven–bake for 30 minutes.
Use a large spatula to turn the granola and add nuts–then bake for an additional 15 mins.
Don’t over bake–and don’t turn or stir–you want some larger chunks of granola.
Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet.
Add dried fruit of your choice.
Store in an airtight container–up to 2 weeks!
Ours never lasts that long!
That was rude of me not to post the recipe yesterday–please forgive me!
