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!

Thank you, Stacey. This sounds easy to make and delicious.
It is the best recipe that I have found (and I have tried a few!)
You can substitute easily–pumpkin pie filling, or honey instead of maple syrup…
This sounds really good! I haven’t made granola with the puffed rice and I think that’s a nice addition. I have some at home and in fact, think I have all the ingredients except the applesauce! Soon! 🙂
I hope you enjoy it, this recipe is my favorite (and I have tried a few)
You can easily make changes to this….Pumpkin pie filling can be used instead or with the applesauce, you can use honey with or instead of the maple syrup, and agave is also good and gives you that sweet touch…
Thank you very much!
Your so welcome! Very forgiving recipe–you can add pumpkin pie mix for a pumpkin flavor–and substitute honey for the maple syrup…..or Agave….
